# Write Two Solutions of the Form X = 0, Y = a and X = B, Y = 0 for the Following Equation : 5x – 2y = 10 - Mathematics

Write two solutions of the form x = 0, y = a and x = b, y = 0 for the following equation :

5x – 2y = 10

#### Solution

Given that

5x – 2y = 10

Substituting  x = 0 in the equation 5x – 2y = 10

We get  5 × 0 - 2y = 10

⇒  y = - 10 /2 =-5

Thus x = 0 and y = -5 is a solution of 5x - 2y = 10

Substituting  y = 0 , we get

⇒  5 x -2 xx 0 = 10

⇒  5x = 10

⇒ x = 2

Thus . x = 2 and y - 0 is a solution of 5x - 2y = 10

Thus . x = 0 . y = -5  and x = 2 .y = 0  are two solutions of 5x - 2y = 10
