# How do you graph the equation #3y – 2x = 6# on a coordinate plane?

##### 2 Answers

Convert the equation

Add 2x to both sides.

Divide both sides by 3.

The slope is

Determine some points on the line by making x=0 and y=0.

If

Point =

If

Multiply times both sides by 3.

Divide both sides by -2.

Point=

graph{y=2/3x+2 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

so the easiest way to graph it is to establish two points on the line.

In a case like this one the easiest two points to establish are the x and y intercepts.

By inspection

x-intercept occurs at

y-intercept occurs at

Make these two points on a graph and draw the straight line that runs through both of them.
