# How do you graph y=2x-5 on a coordinate plane?

See explanation...

#### Explanation:

Note that when $x = 0$, $y = 0 - 5 = - 5$. So the line intercepts the $y$ axis at $\left(0 , - 5\right)$

Note that when $y = 0$, $x = \frac{5}{2}$. So the line intercepts the $x$ axis at $\left(\frac{5}{2} , 0\right)$.

Drawing a line through these points we get:

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