What are the intercepts of #2y-8x=5#?
2y - 8x = 5 is a linear equation ie. a straight line.
when the line crosses the x-axis the y- coordinate will be zero
by substituting y = 0 into the equation we will find the corresponding x- coordinate.
y = 0 : - 8x = 5
In the same way when the line crosses the y-axis the x-coordinate will be zero
now substitute x = 0 into the equation.
x = 0 : 2y = 5
