y  =  60.18x + 335.30

This is a linear equation, so if we just have two points we can draw a straight line through them.

When  x = 0 ,

y  =  60.18(0) + 335.30  =  335.30

So we know the graph contains the point  (0, 335.3)

When  y = 0,

0  =  60.18x + 335.30   →   x  =  -335.30 / 60.18  ≈  -5.572

So we know the graph contains the point  (-5.572, 0)

Plot the points  (0,335.3)  and  (-5.572, 0), and draw a straight line through them,

like this graph:   https://www.desmos.com/calculator/ko1kbpzcpo

(Notice that the x axis and y axis don't have the same increments.)
