Hi, thank you for posting your question here at Brainly.
The easiest and mundane way of graphing this is by assigning values of x and determining the respective y values. Then, you plot the ordered pairs.
Another way is to find the x and yintercept. For example,
0 = 5x + 10
x = 2
y = 5(0) +10
y = 10
Connect the points at x=2 and y=10, then you form a linear plot.

Stepbystep explanation:
the general slope  intercept equation is
[tex]y=mx+b[/tex]
m is the slope of the line
and b is the intercept with the y axis.
In this case since the equation is: [tex]y = 5x + 10[/tex]
m = 5
and b = 10
So we start to graph the equation from the point of intercept y = 10
and we use the slope [tex]m=\frac{5}{1}[/tex] wich means that the function will advance 5 units in y and 1 unit in x. Thus we will graph the equation knowing that the line must intercept the y axis at y = 10 and will move 5 units on the y axis while moving 1 in the x axis.
