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)

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)
