To graph the equation 2x - y = 6 by plotting points, follow these steps:

- Choose values for x.
- Use the equation to find the corresponding values of y.
- Plot the points (x, y) on a coordinate plane.
- Connect the points to form a straight line.

For example, let's choose x = 0, 2, and 4:

When x = 0: 2(0) - y = 6 0 - y = 6 y = -6 So, the point (0, -6) is on the line.

When x = 2: 2(2) - y = 6 4 - y = 6 y = -2 So, the point (2, -2) is on the line.

When x = 4: 2(4) - y = 6 8 - y = 6 y = 2 So, the point (4, 2) is on the line.

Plotting these points and connecting them forms the graph of the equation.
