Graph y7 equals 9(x plus 6)
So 9x plus 54
54 plus 7 is 61
So y equals 9x plus 61. is it correct?

Yes! That's what I get, too.

now that you have y = 9x + 61 , your question was to graph it.
so you need any two points.
One obvious point is the yintercept or (0,61) but that's hard to plot.
So using some number sense, we pick negative x's to bring the y down to a reasonable value
say x = 7, then y = 2
or let x = 8, then y = 11
one more try,
let x = 6, then y = 7
so now you have 3 points, (7,2), (8,11), and (6,7)
plot any two points, join them and use the third point as a checkpoint.
