  1. (-6+3=y)
    the following equation given is a linear function:(general formula is y = mx+c)..where m = the gradient, and c= the y-intercept.hence in the equation given; m is= -6, & c=3. to find the x-intercept, make y = 0.

    eg.
    -6x+3=y
    -6x+3=0
    -6x=-3
    -6x/-3=-3/-3
    2x=1
    x=1/2
