5-59.

Consider the rule

*y*=*x*− 2 . 5-59 HW eTool (Desmos).Without graphing, find the zero of

*y*=*x*− 2. Remember that a zero of a rule is an input that makes the output zero.Make a table and graph

*y*=*x*− 2 on graph paper.How could you find the zero of

*y*=*x*− 2 with your graph from part (b)? What about with the table? Explain.

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

Find the point where *y* = 0.
