Answer:

Refer to the explanation.

Explanation:

If you want to graph the equation using the intercepts, convert the equation into the Intercept-form.
i.e., #x/a +y/b =1#, where #a# is the intercept on X-axis and #b# of Y-axis.

we have,

#3x-5y=-10#

Dividing both side by -10,

#y/2-3x/10 = 1#

Or,

#x/(-10/3)+y/2=1#

On comparing it with the intercept form,

X-intercept = #-10/3# and Y-intercept = 2

So in order to draw the graph of the following equation, you just have to join the points #(-10/3,0)# and #(0,2)# and extend the line as required.

Hope it helps :)
