Short Answer

Find the x-intercept and the y-intercept of the graph of each equation. Then graph of the equation.


The x-intercept of the given equation is 5 and the y-intercept is 2.

See the step by step solution

Step by Step Solution

Step 1- Given information

A linear equation 2x+5y-10=0.

Step 2- Concept used

The y-coordinate of the point at which a graph crosses the y-axis is called the y-intercept.

So, the y-intercept is the value of y when x=0.

The x-coordinate of the point at which a graph crosses the x-axis is called the x-intercept.

So, the x-intercept is the value of x when y=0.

Step 3- To find the x-intercept and y-intercept.

From the given information,


Substitute the y=0 in the equation (1).


Therefore, the x-intercept is 5 and the coordinate is


Now, substitute the x=0 in the given equation (1).


Therefore, the y-intercept is 2 and coordinate is 0,2.

Step 4- Graph of the of the given equation

The graph of the given equation is:
