mark two points
x = 0, y = 9
x = 5, y = 0
draw a line through them
or
Let's find an equation for the line to make it all clear
y= m x + b
when x = 0, it hits the y axis at b = 9
so y = m x + 9
when y = 0, it hits the x axis at x = 5
so
0 = 5m + 9
m = 9/5
so
y = 9/5 x + 9 👍

plot the two intercepts
draw the line through them
for the equation, use the intercept form
x/5 + y/9 = 1 👍
