How do you graph x+y=6 by plotting points?

Sep 2, 2017

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.
