Answer:

See explanation...

Explanation:

Note that when #x = 0#, #y = 0-5 = -5#. So the line intercepts the #y# axis at #(0, -5)#

Note that when #y = 0#, #x = 5/2#. So the line intercepts the #x# axis at #(5/2, 0)#.

Drawing a line through these points we get:

graph{2x-5 [-8.915, 11.085, -6.44, 3.56]}
