In Exercises 1 to 8, draw the graph of each equation. Name any intercepts. x - 2 y = 5

To determine

To draw:

The graph of the equation x-2y=5 and name any intercepts.

Explanation

To draw a graph for a equation,

First we need to find the x-intercept and y-intercept.

For finding the x-intercept, make y as 0 and solve for x in the given equation.

For finding the y-intercept, make x as 0 and solve for y in the given equation.

Substitute x=0 in the given equation x-2y=5,

0-2y=5

On simplifying,

-2y=5

The coefficient of y is -2, thus divide both sides by -2.

-2y-2=5-2

y=-52

Thus the first point is 0, -52.

Substitute y=0 in the given equation x-2y=5,

x-20=5

On simplifying,

x=5

Thus the second point is 5, 0
