ok so i'm taking an online quiz that has material from our whole year and i cant remember how to do this. I know it's really simple and i tried googling but no avail. please help if you can.

What is the X- intercept of the line Y=(5/2)X+5?
It's 5.

i thought that was the y-intercept?
No, its not. its -2.
I'll be your number one with a bullet.

OH that's right! It's -2 then.
I'm sorry, i havent done this stuff in a couple years.

how do you find it though?
Let y=0

So 0=(5/2)x + 5 and solve for x

Find where it crosses the X-axis.

Get X by itself, and set Y to zero.

Do you have to graph the function or just get x?
Y=(5/2)X+5? set y=0

0=(5/2)X+5

-5=(5/2)X

-5/(5/2)=X

X= -2

Either way, I don't think bananas should be placed in such proximity to an ass

I disagree. Bananas and ass are like peaches and cream.
