-2x+5y=20 can be rewritten as x/(-10) + y/4 = 1.

This is the intercept form, where x/a + y/b = 1 has x intercept a and y intercept b.

Here the x intercept is -10 and the y intercept is 4.

:-

- 2x = 20

x = - 10

5y = 20

y = 4

Intercepts are (- 10,0) and (0,4)

If -2x+5y = 20 then the x and y intercepts are at (-10, 0) and (0, 4) respectively

x-intercept happens when y = 0

y-intercept happens when x = 0

x-intercept

-2x + 5 * 0 = 20

-2x = 20

x = -20/2

y-intercept

-2 * 0 + 5y = 20

5y = 20

y = 20/5

You can finish up, can't you?
