  1. for x-intercept , let y = 0
    so 0 = x-6 ---> x=6 or the the point (6,0)

    for y-intercept , let x = 0
    so y = 0-6 = -6, or the point (0,-6)

    you have 2 points, plot them and join with a line

    What would three points on a graph be, graphing the x and y intercepts, with the equation -x + 3y = -9? The x and y intercepts are what you get when plugging in y=0 or x=0. For a third point, you can choose any other x or y value
