1. you plug in zero for x and get 6(0)-7y=-42
and then you get-7y=-42 which is y=6. and then you plug in zero for y and get 6x-7(0)=-42
and then you get 6x=-42 which is x=-7. so your points are (-7,6) and then graph them.

2. Oh and then you put your equation in slope intercept form y=mx+b. and get -7y=-6x-42 and divide by 7. so your line will be y=6/7x +6.
