# How do you graph using the intercepts for - 5x + 3y = 19?

May 5, 2018

Below

#### Explanation:

For x-intercept, let $y = 0$

ie $- 5 x + 3 y = 19$
$- 5 x + 3 \left(0\right) = 19$
$- 5 x = 19$
$x = - \frac{19}{5}$

$\left(- \frac{19}{5}\right)$ is your x-intercept

For y-intercept, let $x = 0$

ie $- 5 x + 3 y = 19$
$- 5 \left(0\right) + 3 y = 19$
$3 y = 19$
$y = \frac{19}{3}$

$\left(0 , \frac{19}{3}\right)$ is your y-intercept

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