# How do you graph # 6x-2y=4# by plotting points?

##### 2 Answers

Rearrange the equation to make

#### Explanation:

Rearrange the equation:

Now input values of x and use the formula to find y.

For example, when

This gives the first coordinate:

Repeat with a second number for the second coordinate and draw a line through the two points (only two points are needed).

graph{4=6x-2y [-4.505, 5.935, -2.75, 2.47]}

From the graph, we can see the point calculated,

#### Explanation:

#"one way is to find the x and y intercepts, that is where the"#

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

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