# How do you find the x and y intercepts for 2x=5y-10?

Dec 15, 2015

$x = - 5$ (it is $x$ intercept), $y = 2$ (it is $y$ intercept)

#### Explanation:

For $x = 0$,
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\times} 2 \times 0 = 5 y - 10$
$\implies y = 2$ (it is $y$ intercept)

For $y = 0$,
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\times} 2 x = 5 \times 0 - 10$
$\implies x = - 5$ (it is $x$ intercept)
