    2/ 2x + 3y = 3 3/ 3x – 2y = 11 4x+6y=6 9x-6y=33 +-------- 13x=39 x=3

    The problem looks like you are to get the solution graphically. You can always confirm the answer algebraically, too. Is it that you don't know how to use the graphing tool or are you saying that you don't understnad the lines drawn?
