## Algebra: A Combined Approach (4th Edition)

To graph the given linear equation, look for three points that belong to the line. To find three points on the line, assign a value to one variable and then solve for the value of the other variable. When x = 0: $x+y=6 \\0+y=6 \\y=6$ The point is $(0, 6)$. When y = 0: $x+y=6 \\x+0=6 \\x=6$ The point is $(6, 0)$. When y = 3: $x+y=6 \\x+3=6 \\x=6-3 \\x=3$ The point is $(3, 3)$. Plot the three points and connect them using a straight line. (refer to the attached image in the answer part above)
