# How do you graph the line 5x - 2y =1?

Apr 17, 2016

$\text{the intercept points are:}$
$A = \left(\frac{1}{5} , 0\right)$
$B = \left(0 , - \frac{1}{2}\right)$

#### Explanation:

$5 x - 2 y = 1$
$2 y = 5 x - 1$

$y = \frac{5}{2} x - \frac{1}{2}$

$\text{let's find the intercept points for line}$
$\mathmr{if} x = 0 \text{ then y=} - \frac{1}{2}$

$\mathmr{if} y = 0 \text{ then "0=5/2x-1/2" "5/2x=1/2" } x = \frac{1}{5}$
