Answer:

See below.

Explanation:

Subtract #x# from both sides to get:

#y = 6 - x#

Put in values for #x# and calculate corresponding values of #y#.
Example:
#x = 1# gives #y = 5#
#x = 10# gives #y = -4#
Since it is the equation of a straight line you only need to find to points, then draw a straight lint between them.
