Submit your graph to the Dropbox.-5x+-8y=-40Answer by nyc_function(2733)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!To find the x-intercept, let y = 0 and solve for x. -5x + -8(0) = -40 -5x + 0 = -40 -5x = -40 x = -40/-5 x = 8 The graph of this equation crosses the x-axis at the point (8,0). To find the y-intercept, let x = 0 and solve for y. -5(0) + -8y = -40 0 -8y = -40 -8y = -40 y = -40/-8 y = 5 The graph of this equation crosses the y-axis at the point (0,5). The x-intercept is x = 8, which is also written as (8,0). The y-intercept is y = 5, which is also written as (0,5). Copy and paste the link below to see your graph.
