1. Points used to graph the slope -1 passing through the point (5,5).
I only need to know were the points go by giving me the numbers.

2. Graph the line 2x-5y=10. I only need to know the 3 of the given points (x,y)(x,y) (x,y)

1. graph the slope -1 passing through the point (5,5)

to graph the slope, we need to have another point (Two points are enough to graph a line.)

with slope -1, and the line passes through the point (x0, y0) = ...
