2 Answers
Just arrange the equation in
So,given equation in
or,
so,comparing with
Now,see the graph below to match the result obtained. graph{5xy+2=0 [10, 10, 5, 5]}
See a solution process below:
Explanation:
We can put the equation for the line in slopeintercept form. The slopeintercept form of a linear equation is:
Where
Therefore:

The slope is:
#color(red)(m = 5)# 
The
#y# intercept is:#color(blue)(b = 2)# or#(0, color(blue)(2))#
