# How do you graph  y = 5/2x – 5?

Jul 10, 2015

Determine two points on the line from the equation. Plot the points and draw a straight line through the points.

#### Explanation:

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

This is the slope-intercept form for a linear equation.

Determine two points on the line. Plot them and draw a straight line through the points.

Point 1: $\left(0 , - 5\right)$
$x = 0$

$y = \frac{5}{2} \left(0\right) - 5$

$y = 0 - 5 = - 5$

Point 2:$\left(2 , 0\right)$
$x = 2$

$y = \frac{5}{2} \cdot \frac{2}{1} - 5$ =

$y = 5 - 5 = 0$
