# How do you graph 2x+y=5?

May 18, 2017

graph{y=-2x+5 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

#### Explanation:

All you have to do is this:

$y = 5 - 2 x$
Bring $2 x$ over to the other side and make it negative.

$y = - 2 x + 5$
Flip flop the $- 2 x$ and the $5$

Graph, with $- 2$ as the slope and $5$ as the y-intercept.

Ta-da! Done!
