An equation is given.

5y - 2x = 5

Create an ordered pair that represents one point on the graph of the equation.

5y - 2x = 5

Create an ordered pair that represents one point on the graph of the equation.

**Solve the equation for y. Then substitute a value in for x to get a corresponding y value.**

5y - 2x = 5

5y = 2x + 5 {added 2x to each side}

y = (2/5)x + 1 {divided each side by 5}

Substitute any x value into y = (2/5)x + 1

**If x = 5,**y = (2/5)(5) + 1 {substituted 5 in for x}

y = 2 + 1 {multiplied 2/5 by 5}

y = 3 {added}

x = 5 and y = 3

**(5,3)**is one point that is on the graph of the equation
