Answer:

Use graph paper or a spreadsheet program to calculate (x,y) pairs of solutions and place them on the graph.

Explanation:

This will be facilitated by first rearranging the equation into one that show a direct relationship between ‘x’ and’y’.
#3x − 2y = 6# ; #-2y = 6 – 3x# ; # y = -3 + (3/2)x# ; #y = (3/2)x - 3#
