    3y = 15 - 5x y = 5 - 5/3x

    let x=0, solve for y.... this will give you the y-intercept. let y=0, solve for x... this will give you the x-intercept. draw a line through these two points to show the graph...

    Yes what dpalnc said. Then you just plug into the equation

    so the x intercept is 5,0 and y is 0,3
