# The equation of the graphed line is x + 2y = 5. What is the x-intercept of the graph?

**Solution:**

Given: Linear equation is x + 2y = 5

x-intercept means the point on the x-axis where the line cuts the x-axis

The coordinates of that point will be (x, 0)

⇒ Put y = 0 in the given equation

Put this point in the given equation

⇒ x + 2(0) = 5

⇒ x = 5

Hence, the x-intercept is (5, 0)

## The equation of the graphed line is x + 2y = 5. What is the x-intercept of the graph?

**Summary:**

If the equation of the graphed line is x + 2y = 5, then the x-intercept of the graph is (5,0).
