# What are the intercepts of 5x-5y=-7?

Dec 31, 2015

First, convert to slope intercept form

#### Explanation:

• 5y = -7 - 5x

y = x + $\frac{7}{5}$

The Y intercept is at (0, $\frac{7}{5}$)

In order to find the X intercept plug in 0 for y into the original equation.

5x - 5(0) = -7

x = $- \frac{7}{5}$

The X intercept is at ($- \frac{7}{5}$,0)
