Solve for $y$. $35+7y=0 \\35+7y-35=0-35 \\7y=-35 \\\frac{7y}{7}=\frac{-35}{7} \\y=-5$ This means the given equation is equivalent to, and has the same graph as $y=-5$. RECALL: The graph of an equation of the form $y=k$ is a horizontal line whose y-intercept is $(0, k)$. Each point on the line has a y-coordinate of $k$. Thus, the graph of $y=-5$ is a horizontal line whose y-intercept is $(0, -5)$. Each point on the line has a y-coordinate of $-5$. This means that the following points are all on the line: $(-2, -5)$, $(0, -5)$, and $(2, -5)$ Plot the three points listed above then connect them using a line to complete the graph. (refer to the attached image in the answer part above for the graph)
