Answer:

Below

Explanation:

For x-intercept, let #y=0#

ie #-5x+3y=19#
#-5x+3(0)=19#
#-5x=19#
#x=-19/5#

#(-19/5)# is your x-intercept

For y-intercept, let #x=0#

ie #-5x+3y=19#
#-5(0)+3y=19#
#3y=19#
#y=19/3#

#(0,19/3)# is your y-intercept

Using your two intercepts, plot them on the graph and join the points together.
