# How do you graph #y = 10/3x + 5#?

##### 1 Answer

graph{10x/3 + 5 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

#### Explanation:

The equation is in the form,

where,

Here,

but, slope = tan

...where,

Now, to find x- intercept, put y = 0

This means that at ant the point (-1.5, 0), you have to draw an angle of 73.3 degrees. this line will represent the given equation.

**An Alternative method:**

Make a table:

Consider any random 3 values of x, and find the corresponding values of y. Plot these points, and th eline will pass through all these points linearly.

E.g.: I consider 3 cases, x=0, =1,=-1

1] For

2] For

3] For

Once you get these 3 points on your graph, simply draw a line that passes through each one of them.

*(You can follow the same 3 steps while assuming any value of y also.)*
