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

Oct 11, 2016

Find at least two pair of coordinates that satisfy the equation;
plot those points;
draw a line through the points.

#### Explanation:

Given
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}} x - y = 5$
Some solution pairs would be:
color(white)("XXX"){: (color(black)x,color(white)("XXX"),color(black)y), (0,,-5), (5,,0), (7,,2):}
(the third pair were just to help verify the results)

Plot the points and draw a line through them:
