**Take any equation and graph both sides of the equation.
For example, if you are trying to solve the equation**

**graph the two equations**

y= 11

**How can you identify the solution to the equation on the
graph?**

y= 2x + 6

y= 24

Once you have done that, you then find the coordinates of the point where they intersect.

**The x value of the point of intersection is your solution
to the equation.**

**x= 9
