5-59.

Consider the rule

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

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

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

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

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

Find the point where *y* = 0.
