# How do you graph  y = -2/5x + 2?

Jul 8, 2015

Substitute 2 values for $x$ and solve for $y$ in order to find two points on the line and plot them. Then draw a straight line through them.

#### Explanation:

$y = - \frac{2}{5} x + 2$

Find two points on the line.

Point A:

$x = 0$

$y = - \frac{2}{5} \cdot 0 + 2$

$y = 0 + 2$

$y = 2$

Point A$=$$\left(0 , 2\right)$

Point B:

$x = 5$

$y = - \frac{2}{5} \cdot 5 + 2$

$y = - \frac{10}{5} + 2$

$y = - 2 + 2$

$y = 0$

Point B$=$$\left(5 , 0\right)$

Plot point A and B, then draw a straight line through them.
