to find the y-intercept, replace x with 0 and evaluate what do you get?

y=-5

the y-intercept is (0,-5) which means there is a point at -5 on the y axis where the graph goes through |dw:1440291847757:dw|

now plug in y = 0 and solve for x. This will give you the x-intercept

what formula do I use?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
y = x-5 0 = x-5 ... replace y with 0 now isolate x. To do so, you add 5 to both sides (to undo the subtraction of 5)

so 5 = x?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
yep x = 5 which means the x-intercept is (5,0) basically 5 on the x axis |dw:1440292096323:dw|

then I would put y at -5 on the y axis and 5 on the x axis?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
a straight line goes through those two points |dw:1440292123939:dw|
