  1. x intercept: when y is zero
    y ntercept: when x is zero

  2. -2x + 5x = -15.
    Let y = 0:
    -2x + 5*0 = -15,
    -2x = -15,
    x = 7 1/2 = x-int.

    Let x = 0:
    -2*0 + 5y = -15,
    5y = -15,
    y = -3 = y-int.

    Solution Sets: (7 1/2,0),(0,-3).

    Use the above points to graph the Eq.
