#### Answer:

See below.

#### Explanation:

Use the general equation of a line:

Here,

Here,

Through the observations above, we find that:

- The line gets to
#x=0# at#y=-5/2# - After that, for every
#1# unit increase in the#x# value, the#y# value increases by#5# units.

So at

At

At

At

And so on and so forth. We can use Socratic's graphing utility to make sure of so:

graph{5x-5/2 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

We can see that our observations are true.
