how do you find solutions to an equation like this (6-2x-2y=0)?

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)
$$y = \frac{-6 + 2x}{-2}$$

or

$$x = \frac{-6+2y}{-2}$$

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

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