# How do you graph 2x-6y=6 using intercepts?

Aug 24, 2016

The intercepts are the points where $y = 0$ and $x = 0$
The y intercept is where $x = 0$. In this case you have $- 6 y = 6$ and the value of $y = - 1$. So, the point $\left(0 , - 1\right)$ is on the line.
Similarly, the x intercept is where $y = 0$. In this case $2 x = 6$ and so $x = 3$. Then, the point $\left(3 , 0\right)$ is on the line. Now you have to mark the two points $\left(0 , - 1\right)$ and $\left(3 , 0\right)$ and graph the line through them:
