# How do you find the intercepts for #2x+5=y#?

##### 1 Answer

X-intercept is

Y-intercept is

#### Explanation:

This problem is about finding the points of intersection between a straight line (a *graph*) defined by a function

graph{2x+5 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

A point of intersection of our graph with the horizontal X-axis is called the X-intercept and is characterized by a specific value of X-coordinate when Y-coordinate equals to

So, what is the value of

The answer is

Therefore, X-intercept is

A point of intersection of our graph with the vertical Y-axis is called the Y-intercept and is characterized by a specific value of Y-coordinate when X-coordinate equals to

So, what is the value of

The answer is

Therefore, Y-intercept is
