5-59.

Consider the rule $y=\frac{1}{3}x-2$.

1. Without graphing, find the zero of $y=\frac{1}{3}x-2$. Remember that a zero of a rule is an input that makes the output zero.

Set the equation equal to zero, since your output would be zero, and then solve for $x$.

2. Make a table and graph $y=\frac{1}{3}x-2$ on graph paper.

3. How could you find the zero of $y=\frac{1}{3}x-2$ with your graph from part (b)? What about with the table? Explain.

Find the point where $y=0$.
