# How do you graph 3x+y=6 using intercepts?

Sep 26, 2016

find out the intercept and join them together

#### Explanation:

subtitute $y = 0$ to find x intercepts

when $y = 0$

$3 x = 6$
$x = 2$

x intercepts is 2

subtitute $x = 0$ to find y intercepts

when $x = 0$

$y = 6$

y intercepts is 3

since this is a linear equation $y = m x + c$,we can draw the graph by draw a line to join the two intercept point
