# WeUsing the x-intercept and y-intercept, how do you graph #2x-3y=5#?

##### 2 Answers

graph{2x-3y=5 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

#### Explanation:

the equation can be converted into

(-2x)

(/3)

(*-1)

#### Explanation:

When the line with given equation crosses the y-axis the corresponding x-coordinate at this point will be zero.

Substituting x = 0 into the equation gives the y-intercept.

#(2xx0)-3y=5rArr-3y=5rArry=-5/3#

#rArr(0,-5/3)" is the point on the y-axis"# Similarly when the line crosses the x-axis the corresponding

y-coordinate at this point will be zero. Substituting y = 0 into the equation gives the x-intercept.

#2x-(3xx0)=5rArr2x=5rArrx=5/2#

#rArr(5/2,0)" is the point on the x-axis"# Plot these 2 points and draw a straight line through them.
