#### Explanation:

#"one way is to find the intercepts, that is where the graph"#

#"crosses the x and y axes"#

#• " let x = 0, in the equation for y-intercept"#

#• " let y = 0, in the equation for x-intercept"#

#x=0rArr0-y=6rArry=-6larrcolor(red)"y-intercept"#

#y=0rArr2x-0=6rArrx=3larrcolor(red)"x-intercept"#

#"plot "(0,-6)" and "(3,0)#

#"draw a straight line through them for graph"#

graph{(y-2x+6)((x-0)^2+(y+6)^2-0.04)((x-3)^2+(y-0)^2-0.04)=0 [-28.88, 28.84, -14.42, 14.46]}
