The linear equation is .

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

(Substitute 0 for x)

(Apply zero product property: )

The y-intercept is 0. The graph crosses the y-axis at (0, 0).

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

(Substitute 0 for y)

Apply division property of equality: If a = b then .

(Divide each side by 5)

(Cancel common terms)

(Divide: )

The x-intercept is 0. The graph crosses the x-axis at (0, 0).

Use these ordered pairs to graph the equation.

1.  Draw a coordinate plane

2.  Plot the points

3.  Draw a line through these points.

Graph of the linear equation is
