What is the graph of the equation?
-5x+y=-3
I don't know what to do, help?

You can give any arbitrary number to "x" and solve for "y", for at least two points on the graph, if you join the points you'll obtain the graph of that line.

- anonymous

I'm sorry could you explain just a bit more? if thats possible

- anonymous

I can use -5 for x right? But how would i go about solving y..
Thank you btw I'm sorry im so confused haha

Say for instance,
We consider x=-5, then:
\[-5(-5)+y=-3\]
Now, we just operate:
\[25+y=-3\]
\[y=-28\]
So, therefore, the point "w", as we can call it, belongs in the line whose equation is given, if you represent this point on the cartesian plane, and repeat the process for another value of "x", then join the points, you'll obtain the graph of the line.
\[w(-5,-28)\]

-5x + y = -3

- triciaal

another more direct approach
let y be the subject

- skullpatrol

Have you learned the form
y = mx + b

- anonymous

Yes.

- skullpatrol

y = 5x -3

- triciaal

when x = 0 y = -3

- skullpatrol

I added 5x to both sides :-)

- anonymous

Would it be positive or negative?

- skullpatrol

Does that make sense?

- anonymous

Yes it does, I have 2 answer choices that could work i just need to figure out if its negative or positive

- skullpatrol

5x + (-5x) = 0

- imqwerty

ok i'll tell a simpler way

- anonymous

please

- skullpatrol

What do you want to know is positive or negative?

- anonymous

The line on the graph

- skullpatrol

The slope is positive because the 5 in 5x is positive.

- imqwerty

if u have something like this-
ax+by=c
then just divide all over by c
\[\frac{ ax }{ c }+\frac{ by }{ c }=\frac{ c }{ c }\]\[\frac{ x }{ \frac{ c}{ a }}+ \frac{ y }{ \frac{ c }{ b } }=1\]
calculate c/a and c/b
and (c/a, 0)=point where the graph cuts x axis
(0,c/b)=point where graph cuts y axis
so basically just identify a,b,c and then find the points
then join them
and thats ur graph

- skullpatrol

Do you understand what slope is?

- imqwerty

@mickey1513 did u get my method?

- anonymous

So, its going to be positive

- anonymous

yay it was right. thank you i get it now
all of you deserve medals

- imqwerty

well thr best way was like what owl said
u jst take some random value of x and get y and plot that point
then u take another random value of x and put it in equation nd get y and pot this point
and then join these 2 points

- skullpatrol

Thanks for asking :-)
