# In Exercises 1 to 8, draw the graph of each equation. Name any intercepts. 2 x + 6 = 0

To determine

To draw:

The graph of the equation 2x+6=0 and name any intercepts.

Explanation

To draw a graph for a equation,

First we need to find the x-intercept and y-intercept.

For finding the x-intercept, make y as 0 and solve for x in the given equation.

For finding the y-intercept, make x as 0 and solve for y in the given equation.

Here first we need to make the given equation into the general form as

Ax+By=C

Thus, given equation 2x+6=0 is equivalent to

2.x+0.y=-6

The equation 2x=-6 claims the value of x=-3, regardless of the value of y.

This leads to the following table:

 x y x, y -3 2
