Please see below.

#### Explanation:

Take the equation

**x = 0:**

So this calculation gives you a point on the plot of the equation

The point has coordinates (0,-2), put a dot at (0,-2).

If you need help placing the point (0,-2) on your graph, click this link.

**x = 5:**

So this calculation gives you a point on the plot of the equation

The point has coordinates (5,1), put a dot at (5,1).

Because there are no exponents in the equation, the equation plots a straight line. Draw a line through your 2 dots.

I hope this helps,
