    They're the same type of questions, but they're different equations.

    put in any old x, find y

    For example x = 100
    400 - 3 y = 6
    3 y = 394
    y = 131 1/3
    (6, 131 1/3)

    OK.

    I'm not a math teacher -- but how about setting up a table with the multiples of 4 and the multiples of 3.

    4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, etc.
    3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, etc.

    Which numbers -- when subtracted -- he 6?

    *equal 6

    Oh, you want whole number solutions?
    The slope of this line is 4/3
    so from your first point (3,2)
    go right 3 and up 4
    (6,6)
    again go right 3 and up 4
    (9,10)

  • Pre-Algebra [repost] - ,

    y=4/3x-2

    m=4/3=slope

    (0,-2) up 4 over 3 = (3,2)
    (3,2) up 4 over 3 = (6,6)
    (6,6) up 4 over 3 = (9,10)

    If you cannot learn the GENERAL PROCESS, then you need to be taught the same general thing a million different times.

    You need to learn how to abstract ideas and then apply them to specific instances.
