if you are going to do it by hand, probably the best think to do if fine the intercepts

so for \[x3y=12\] find the x intercept by setting y = 0 get \[x=12\] so you know (12,0) is on the graph. for the y  intercept set x = 0 and get \[3y=12\implies y=4\] so you know (0,4) is on the graph. plot those two points, connect the dots

repeat the process for \[2xy=1\] or else rewrite as earthcitizen wrote as \[y=2x1\] and then replace x by some well chosen numbers and find a couple points
