# How do you draw the line with the x intercept of 3 and y intercept of 5?

May 26, 2017

Plot both intercepts and draw a line through them.

#### Explanation:

The word 'intercept' means the point where a line crosses an axis.

In this case you are given both intercepts.

Plot the point $x = 3$ on the $x$-axis.

Plot the point $y = 5$ on the $y$-axis.

A straight line drawn through these 2 points is the required line.
