#### Answer:

Refer to explanation below.

#### Explanation:

First rearrange the equation.

Now, substitute x = 0 into the equation to find the intersection with the y-axis.

Therefore the graph intersects the y-axis at (0, 0)

Now, substitute y = 0 into the equation to find the intersection with the x-axis.

Therefore the graph intersects the x-axis at (0, 0)

The gradient of the graph is found by looking at the coefficient of x.

Therefore the graph is observed to have a negative gradient with the value of

graph{2x + 6y = 0 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
