Graph a line whose y-intercept is -5 and whose X- intercept is 7


Expert Answer

Step 1

Since Y intercept is -5, (0,-5) is a point on the graph. Let this point be represented by (x1,y1).

Since X intercept is 7, (7,0) is a point on the graph. Let this point be represented by (x2,y2).

Step 2

Let the equation of the line be y=mx+c. Calculating the slope m:

Step 3

The equation now becomes y=(5/7)x+c.
