find the intercept and graph. x+3y=6
I need to complete the ordered pair (3,)
so im I setting the problem up right
x(3)+3y=6? and thus the missing ordered pair is 2?

you don't say which intercept.
If you want the xintercept, that's where y=0, so
x+0 = 6
x = 6
(6,0) is the xintercept
If you want the tintercept, that's where x=0, so
0+3y = 6
y = 2
(0,2) is the yintercept.
If you have the ordered pair (3,?), plug in x=3 and you have
3+3y = 6
3y = 3
y = 1
(3,1) is a point on the line.
