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 ; $y = - 3 + \left(\frac{3}{2}\right) x$ ; $y = \left(\frac{3}{2}\right) x - 3$
