One way is to find

#### Explanation:

I noticed that the equation is linear (a degree of

What we can do is to sub each variable as

This will give us the

First, the

#x+4y=12#

#x+4(0)=12#

#x=12#

Therefore, the

Now the

#x+4y=12#

#(0)+4y=12#

#4y=12#

Now we can isolate

#(4y)/4=12/4#

#y=3#

Therefore, the

Now that we have two points, we can just connect the two with a straight line and we have our graph.

graph{x+4y=12 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

Hope this helps :)
