# How do you graph x=6 by plotting points?

Apr 12, 2017

(see below for method used)

#### Explanation:

If you need to do this by "plotting points"
pick some (arbitrary) values for $y$; for example:
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}} y \in \left\{- 2 , 0 , 3 , 5\right\}$

Then write the coordinate pair for each of these sample $y$ values using the equation $x = 6$ to determine the corresponding $x$ value:
color(white)("XXX"){: ("("color(black)(ul(x)),",",color(black)(ul(y))")"), ("("6,",",-2")"), ("("6,",",0")"), ("("6,",",3")"), ("("6,",",5")") :}

Plot these points on the Cartesian plane and draw a line through them.
