$\mathrm{Domain:}\ \ (-\infty,\infty)$

Work Step by Step

Given function: $\quad f(x)=5-2x$ The function will be defined for any value of $\ x\ $. So the domain would be $\ (-\infty,\infty).$ The given function is linear and represents a line. We need at least two points to graph it. Just pick 2 values of $\ x\ $ and find their corresponding $\ y\ $ values. Then draw the line through those two points. When $\ x=0,\ y=5-0=5$. So our first point is $\ (0,5)$ When $\ x=2,\ y=5-4=1$. So our first point is $\ (2,1)$ So, here is our graph.
