Answer:

#(0,-7) and (7/5,0)#

Explanation:

To find the y-intercept, let x = 0 and you get #y = - 7#

To find the x-intercept, let y = 0 and you get #x= 7/5#

Note that a linear straight line graph of form #y=mx+c# has gradient m (in this case 5) and y-intercept c (in this case -7)

Graphically :

graph{5x-7 [-20.27, 20.27, -10.13, 10.15]}
