## anonymous 5 years ago Algebraically determine the x-intercept and y-intercept. x/5+y/2=1

1. watchmath

Set $$x=0$$ we have $$y/2=1$$. So $$y=2$$. Hence (0,2) is the y-intercept. Set $$y=0$$ we have $$x/5=1$$. SO $$x=5$$. Hence (5,0) is the x-intercept.

How would I write out that equation in slope-intercept form?

You just need to isolate the $$y$$. First move the $$x/5$$ $$y/2=-x/5+1$$ Then multiply by 2 $$y=-\frac{2}{5}x+2$$
