I am trying to plot a linear function in the form Ax+By=C. I have to plot a lot of them, so I don't want to have to get the y on one side all the time. Are there anyways I can just plot a function right off that form?

I tried Plot[3x+4y=12,{x,-10,10}] and most variations on that, but Mathematica gave me weird results (such as the graph of y=3x+12 instead of what I actually wanted). I also tried to set a range for y as well so that it would be perhaps recognized as a variable, but that did not work out either. Can anyone help?

Any comment on this topic is highly appreciated!
