This is an equation of a straight line. A solution for two unknowns requires two (independent) equations; there is only one here.

Every point that is on that line is a solution to the equation. So you can let x be any real number and find a corresponding y. This ordered pair (x,y) will be a solution to the equation as well as a point on the graph of the line.
