The equation of a line is 5x-2y=10. the intercepts should be written as ordered pairs, what is the x and y intercepts.

 

Thanks for the help!

X intercept occurs when y = 0     sub in y=0 to find x intercept

5x -2(0) = 10       x intercept = 2     (2,0)

 

Y intercept occurs when x= 0     sub in x = 0 to find y-intercept

 

5(0) - 2y = 10       y intercept = - 5     (0, -5)
