# How do you graph using the intercepts for 10x+8y=2?

Jun 16, 2018

x-intercept $= \left(\frac{1}{5}\right)$, y-intercept $= \left(\frac{1}{4}\right)$

#### Explanation:

$\frac{x}{a} + y \frac{.}{b} = 1$ where a is the x-intercept and b the y-intercept.

$10 x + 8 y = 2$

$\left(\frac{10}{2}\right) x + \left(\frac{8}{2}\right) y = 1$

$\frac{x}{\frac{1}{5}} + \frac{y}{\frac{1}{4}} = 1$

x-intercept $= \left(\frac{1}{5}\right)$, y-intercept $= \left(\frac{1}{4}\right)$
