The x and y axes are perpendicular to each other. The line 3x - 2y = 6 can be written in the intercept-intercept form as x/2 - y/3 = 1.

The line intersects the x-axis at (2, 0) and the y-axis at (0, -3). The area enclosed by the line and the axes is (1/2)*2*3 = 3.

The area enclosed by the line 3x - 2y = 6 and the x and y axes is 3 square units.
