## Answers ( )

Answer:X intercept =(-2,0)

Y intercept=(0,5)

Step-by-step explanation:We have the given equation as

-5x +2y – 10 =0

we will obtain the Y intercept when the x coordinate is 0

therefore putting x=0 in the equation

-5(0) + 2y -10 =0

2y=10

y=5

therefore y intercept is at (0,5)

similarly

we will obtain X intercept when y coordinate is 0

therefore putting y= 0 in the equation

-5x +2(0) -10 =0

-5x=10

x=-2

therefore our X intercept is at (-2,0)

Hope you got your answer mate !
