3D Graph

For this project, I built a model of a linear equation in three dimensions. The equation that my group and I chose was 3x+4y+2z=12. The ordered triple that I had to do was (-x, y, -z). So the equation then became -3x+4y-2z=12. In order to graph it I had to find the x, y, and z intercepts. To find the intercepts, I plugged in zero to solve for one variable and repeat for the remaining variables. The intercepts I found were (-4,0,0) , (0,3,0) , & (0,0,-6). I plotted and connected my points and ended up with a 3D plane.
