The graph of the equation is See the step by step solution

## Step 1. Given Information

In the given exercises we have to graph by plotting points.

$3x+5y=5$

## Step 2. Find three points that are solutions to the equation.First, let x=0

$3x+5y=5\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}3×0+5y=5\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}5y=5$

Solve for y.

$5y=5\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\frac{5}{5}y=\frac{5}{5}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}y=1$

## Step 3. Now let y=0

$3x+5y=5\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}3x+5×0=5\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}3x=5$

Solve for x.

$\frac{3}{3}x=\frac{5}{3}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}x=\frac{5}{3}$

## Step 4. We need a third point. Remember, we can choose any value for x or y.We'll let x=1

$3x+5y=5\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}3×1+5y=5\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}3+5y=5$

Subtract by 3 on both side

$3+5y-3=5-3\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}5y=2$

Solve for y.

$\frac{5}{5}y=\frac{2}{5}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}y=\frac{2}{5}$

## Step 5. Plot all points in a rectangular coordinate system.Plot the points (0,1) (53,0), 1,25 ## Step 6. Draw the lines through the three points.  ### Want to see more solutions like these?
