The x-intercept is found by substituting y = 0 and solving for x. The y-intercept is found by substituting x = 0 and solving for y. x-intercept: Let y=0 Divide both sides by 2. The x-intercept is (5, 0) The y-intercept: Let x = 0 Divide both sides by 5. The y-intercept is (0, 2) Now plot these two points on your graph, draw the line and you're done.
