    Hello, my name is Stephen and I'll be your tutor In the form: y = mx + b, m is the slope of the equation and b is the y-intersect You first want to put the equation in y = mx + b by solving for y. To do this, take x + 3y = 6, and subtract x, and then divide by 3.

    x + 3y = 6 3y = 6 - x y = 2 - 3x y = 3x - 2

    Now, you go to -2 on your y-intersect and your slope is 3/1, so you rise 3 and run 1.

    |dw:1371942073702:dw| Those black lines are your middle points. Now, on your y intersect go over -2 spaces
