graph the system and write the solution
2x+y=6
y=1/2+3

Your solution is going to be where these two lines cross each other.
2x + y = 6
can be written as y = 2x+ 6
choose values for x and see what y becomes.
x = 1 y = 4
x = 0 y = __
x = 1 Y = ___
Graph these 3 points.
y = 1/2 x + 3
To find points easier, use multiples of 2 for x.
x = 4 so y = 2+3 = 5
x = 4 so y = 2 + 3 = 1
x = 0 y = ____
x = 2 y = _____
You should use a minimum of three points.
Once you find the point where the two lines cross, you should check both the x and y value in each equation to be sure that you have not made a mistake.
for the second equation
