Answer:

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

Explanation:

#y=5/2x-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: #(0,-5)#
#x=0#

#y=5/2(0)-5#

#y=0-5=-5#

Point 2:#(2,0)#
#x=2#

#y=5/2*2/1-5# =

#y=5-5=0#

graph{y=5/2x-5 [-14.24, 14.23, -7.12, 7.12]}
