    This is the equation of a line so to every posible x there corresponds a y and
    vice versa. If we rewrite it in the form: y=12-2x, then pick any three values
    of x we can calculate the corresponding values of y.

    Code:
       x   y=12-2y
       0     12
       1     10
       2      8
