3y + 6x = -24

Let's get this into slope-intercept form. Add 6x to both sides of the equation.

3y = 6x - 24 Now divide through by 3 .

y = 2x - 8

Now we can see that the slope is 2 and the y-intercept is -8 .

To graph it, plot the y-intercept: (0, -8)

and from there, plot a point that is 2 units up and 1 unit right: (1, -6) ,

then connect these points with a straight line.
