Answer:

Your graph should look like:

(see below for method used)

Explanation:

If you need to do this by "plotting points"
pick some (arbitrary) values for #y#; for example:
#color(white)("XXX")y in {-2, 0, 3, 5}#

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.
