Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0set x = any number you want and find out what y is for that value of x. set x = any other number and find out what y is for that value of x. now you have two sets of x and ys. those represent two points (x1 y1) and (x2 y2) draw a line through those two points. that line is the graph of your equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0put x=0 in the equation find out y. then put y=0 and find out x. plot the two (x,y) values in the graph and draw a straight line joining thesr two points..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay so you chose 3. set x =3 in your equation x+2y = 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the point to graphing is just finding two points on the graph of a linear equation and joining them. i dont know what "point" you are referring to. no offense buddy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the point of graphing is to find a visual representation of an equation. it doesn't matter which points you choose.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and the answer is also 2 right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right, so your two points are (3,1.5) and (2,2) so now, on a piece of graph paper, draw a line through those two points. that is your answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0good, note that you could have chosen any number for x and you would have got a corresponding value for y.
