    Is that the exact question you are looking at?

    Then how would i graph it?

    3 is the y-intercept, so (0,3) is a point on the graph. You just need to find one more point on the graph, plot it, and draw a line between the two points

    How would i do that?

    so if x = 1, then y = 6(1)+3 = 9, meaning (1, 9) is another point on the graph

    I described how to draw a picture (graph) of the line

    Okay this is how the question is written: "Graph each linear equation?" Then its gives me the problem which is : y=6x+3

    okay. you can use the method of plotting 2 points that I described to do that

    or you can plot the y-intercept and use slope

    Can you give me an example using this problem and using the y- intercepr and use slope method

    The slope is 6 (the number in from of the x term). This means that for every 1 unit we move in the positive x direction, the line goes up 6 in the y direction

    the y-intercept is (0, 3) so using slope if we move to x = 1, we need to add 6 to y. So another point is (1, 9)

    Then another would be (2, 15), etc..

    you just need to plot 2 points that are on the line to draw the line

    But in the back of my book the graph doesnt go that high, I only goes upto 5 and thats it.

    The previouis problem was x-2y=6 and this one was the one after

    You can still plot two points and draw a line through them, the book just didn't use nice whole numbers to graph its line

    you could let y = 0 and find the x-intercept too

    0 =6x+3 x = -1/2 so (-1/2, 0) is another point on the graph

    you got Y already.
