Answer:

#"see explanation"#

Explanation:

#"one way is to find the x and y intercepts, that is where "#
#"the graph crosses the axes"#

#• " let x = 0, in the equation for the y-intercept"#

#• " let y = 0, in the equation for the x-intercept"#

#x=0toy=0+2=2larrcolor(red)" y-intercept"#

#y=0tox+2=0tox=-2larrcolor(red)" x-intercept"#

#"plot " (0,2),(-2,0)#

#"and draw a straight line through them"#
