Plot both intercepts and draw a line through them.


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.
graph{y = -5/3x+5 [-9.12, 10.88, -2.74, 7.26]}
