What is the x-intercept of the line represented by the following equation?

5x - 37 = -2

A. (0, 2/3)
B. (2/3, 0)
C. (0, -2/5)
D. (-2/5, 0)

  • algebra - ,

    5x - 3y = -2 * whoops

  • algebra - ,

    For the x-intercept, let y = 0

    (put your pinkie finger over the y term and mentally solve what is left of the equation.)
    I see 5x = -2 , so
    x = -2/5
    Of course we let y = 0, so the point is (-2/5, 0)
