 The expression is .

The equation is in slope-intercept form.

To graph the equation, first graph the .

       (Subtract 3x from each side)

       (Apply commutative property of addition: a + b = b + a)

                        (Apply additive inverse property: )

                   (Divide each side by 2)

                        (Cancel common terms)

First find the y-intercept.

The y-intercept is the value of y, when x = 0.

                             (Zero product property: )

                                   (Apply additive identity property: )     

                                      (Divide: )

Next find the x-intercept

The co-ordinate point is

The x-intercept is the value of x, when y = 0.

           (Multiply each side by 2)

                   (Cancel common terms)

                         (Zero product property: )

        (Add 3x to each side)

                         (Apply additive inverse property: )

                               (Apply additive identity property: )

                           (Divide each side by 3)

                                (Cancel common terms)

                                   (Divide: )

Next find the y-intercept.

The co-ordinate point is (2, 0)

Use these ordered pairs to graph the equation.

1.     Draw a coordinate plane.

2.     Plot the points.

3.     Draw a line through these points.

graph linear equation 3x+2y=6
