# What are the intercepts for 2x - 5y=50?

Jun 7, 2018

$\text{y-intercept "=-10," x-intercept } = 25$

#### Explanation:

$\text{to find the intercepts, that is where the graph crosses}$
$\text{the x and y axes}$

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

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

$x = 0 \Rightarrow 0 - 5 y = 50 \Rightarrow y = - 10 \leftarrow \textcolor{red}{\text{y-intercept}}$

$y = 0 \Rightarrow 2 x - 0 = 50 \Rightarrow x = 25 \leftarrow \textcolor{red}{\text{x-intercept}}$
