This is a great tool for plotting things http://www36.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=+x-2y%3D4 If you wanted to plot the line yourself, pick an 'easy' value for x and then find the y that makes the equation true. I like to pick x=0. So one point is (0, -2) Now pick a second value. I like to pick y=0. So another point is (4,0). Plot those two points and draw the line that connects them. Anytime the equation you are given has a single power of x added/subtracted to a single power of y being set to some number, you have a line.
