# How do you graph  x=y+5?

May 17, 2018

Change the equation into the y intercept form and use the slope and the y intercept to graph the equation.

#### Explanation:

$y = m x + b$ is the y intercept form.

Change the existing equation so the y is on the left and x on the right side of the equation.

$x - x - y = y - x - y + 5$ This leaves

$- y = - x + 5$ Multiply both sides by -1

# -1 xx -y = -1 ( -x +5) which gives

$y = x - 5$

$- 5 = b$ the y intercept or the beginning of the graph.

So start by making a point at the beginning ( 0, -5)

$1 = m$ the slope of the equation

So using the slope go up 1 and to the right 1 and make a point at (1,-4) the next point will be ( 2. -3)

Connect the three points and that is the graph of the equation
$x = y + 5$
