can you please break this equation down for me.I saw how you got 0,0 but im confusing my self on the rest of the problems such as 3x+2y=8
2x3y=1
heres my answer (2,1) am i correct?

To find out if you are right or not, put your answer (x =2, y=1) back in each equation
equation 1
3(2) + 2(1) = ??? 8
6  2 = 8 sure enough
equation 2
2(2)  3(1) = ??? 1
4 + 3 = 1 sure enough so you did it right 
Now the how :
equation 1
when x = 0, y = 8/2 so y intercept at (0,4)
when y = 0, x = 8/3 so x intercept at (8/3,0)
draw that line
equation 2
when x = 0, y = 1/3 so (0,1/3)
when y = 0, x = 1/2 so (1/2, 0)
graph
see if they hit each other at (2,1)
