How do you graph the line 5x-2y=6?

Mar 15, 2018

$5 x - 2 y = 6$

First simplify it so you have the $y$ on one side and the rest on the other

$5 x - 6 = 2 y$
$y = \frac{5 x - 6}{2}$

And so you take any 2 numbers, not too big and put instead of x
and you've got two dots on the plane with the coordinates $A \left(x , y\right)$ and $B \left(x 1 , y 1\right)$

The $x$ in the $A$ dot is the first $x$ you choose and the $y$ is the $y$ you get once you enter the $x$ and solve it, same goes for #B(x1,y1) but obviously the coordinates should be different
