Work Step by Step
The x-intercept of the equation $x = 5y$ can be found by substituting in $0$ for $y$ ($y$ will be zero at the equation's x-intercept). Thus: $x = 5 (0)$ $x = 0$ at the equation's x-intercept. Therefore, the equation passes through the point $(0, 0)$. At the equation's y-intercept, $x = 0$. Thus: $0 = 5y$ $y = 0$ at the equation's y-intercept, and the equation passes through the point $(0, 0)$. If we plot these two points and draw the line that passes through them, we will get the graph of this linear equation.
