How do you graph the line y=2x + 6?

Plot to points and join the line formed

Explanation:

Since two points are enough to characterize a line, we can simply find two points lying on this line, plot them and then simply join them
For $y = 2 x + 6$, take two easy points.
If $x = 0$ then we know that $y = 6$
So one point is $\left(0 , 6\right)$

If $y = 0$ then we know that $x = - 3$
So another point is $\left(- 3 , 0\right)$

And that's it plot those two points and connect them using a line
graph{2x+6 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

Note: I used these two points because they are the easiest to use because they had 0 in them
