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,

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