how do you find solutions to an equation like this (6-2x-2y=0)?
You can write it in a way so that one variable is dependent on the other:

ie)
[tex] y = \frac{-6 + 2x}{-2} [/tex]

or

[tex] x = \frac{-6+2y}{-2} [/tex]

So for the first one you have a function, [itex] f(x) [/itex] that for every [itex] f(x=value) [/itex] you have a solution.

The solution set to that equation is a line, namely y=3-x.
