## Answers ( )

Answer:The x intercept is (3/2,0)

The y intercept is (0,-3)

Step-by-step explanation:Y+5=2(x+1)

To find the x intercept, set y =0 and solve for x

0+5=2(x+1)

Distribute

5 = 2x+2

Subtract 2 from each side

5-2 =2x +2-2

3 =2x

Divide by 2

3/2 =x

The x intercept is (3/2,0)

To find the y intercept, set x =0 and solve for y

y+5=2(0+1)

y+5 = 2*1

y+5=2

Subtract 5 from each side

y+5-5=2-5

y=-3

The y intercept is (0,-3)
