# How do you graph the line 5x+2y=4?

#### Answer:

It is explained below.

#### Explanation:

For graphing the line, it would require at least two points on this line to be plotted on the graph. To do this, solve the equation for y,

$y = \frac{4 - 5 x}{2}$ Assign two arbitrary values to x, for example x=0, and x=2. These would give y=2 and y= -3 respectively. Thus the coordinates of the two points would be (0,2) and (2, -3).

Plot these points and join then using a straight edge. The line thus drawn would the required graph.
