how do you graph linear equation 2x= -10y and x+5y=3

1. Steve

pick two x values, figure the y values there, and plot the points. Then draw a line between them.

Easy points to pick are where x=0 or y=0.

2x = -10y
(0,0) is on the line.
If x=5, y=-1, so (5,-1) is on the line
Plot those two points and draw a line through them.

x+5y=3
(3,0) is on the line
(-12,3) is on the line
plot and draw.
