```Try these

ContourPlot[3 x^2 + 6 y^2 == 6,
{x, -2, 2}, {y, -2, 2}, Axes -> True]

Attributes[ContourPlot]

{HoldAll,Protected}

eqn1 = 3 x^2 + 6 y^2 == 6;

ContourPlot[Evaluate[eqn1],
{x, -2, 2}, {y, -2, 2}, Axes -> True]

eqn2 = 3 x^2 + 6 y^2;

ContourPlot[eqn2 == 6,
{x, -2, 2}, {y, -2, 2}, Axes -> True]

ContourPlot[eqn2,
{x, -2, 2}, {y, -2, 2}, Axes -> True,
Contours -> {6}]

Hi:

1a.) When I assign 3 x^2 + 6 y^2 == 6 to eqn1, in Mathematica like this:

eqn1=3 x^2 + 6 y^2 == 6;

I can't get ContourPlot to plot eqn1 using this code:

ContourPlot[eqn1, {x, -2, 2}, {y, -2, 2}, Axes -> True]

1b.) If I assign the equation like this without the constant on the R.H. side in eqn2,
ContourPlot will plot the equation as expected, using the following syntax:

eqn2=3 x^2 + 6 y^2;
ContourPlot[eqn2 == 6, {x, -2, 2}, {y, -2, 2}, Axes -> True]

Question: How can I get method 1a to work? Could you please give me code for this?

Thanks,

Bill

PS. I'm using Mathematica 6.0.1 w/ Win XP on a PC.
