Can anyone help with this question Please:

The line 3x+2y-5=0 meets the x-axis at the point R. Work out the coordinates of R.
What is true about the y co-ordinate of any point on the x axis? Sketch it if you wish, once you know this then work out how to solve this question.
3. y has a special value on the x axis ? use this special value in the equation of the line to find x.
4. >meets the x-axis at R
if line meets x-axis at R, then y must = 0
therefore, let y = 0

3x+2(0)-5=0
3x-5=0
3x=5
x=5/3

co-ordinates R(5/3, 0)
