Need assistance with the following word problems:

A. Given the following linear equation: 2x - 5y = 5
a. Graph the line for the given equation.
Two points are needed to graph a straight line.
Usually, we use x- and y-intercepts.
x-intercept: y = 0, 2x - 0 = 5, then x = 2.5, so x-intercept is (2.5, 0)
y-intercept: x = 0, 0 - 5y = 5, then y = -1, so y-intercept ...
