Copy into a notebook and evaluate:

aa = 2 x + 5 y == 1;

ContourPlot[Evaluate[aa], {x, -5, 5}, {y, -5, 5},
 Axes -> True]

An alternative method:

Print["My equation"]
Print["Solve the equation for y"]
Solve[aa, y]
Print["Extract the solution rule"]
Part[%%, 1, 1]
Print["Define a plotting function f[x]"]
f[x_] = y /. %%

Now plot f[x].

Plot[f[x], {x, -5, 5},
 Frame -> True,
 Axes -> True]

Hello Everyone!

I suppose that my question can be very easy. I will translate it on
simple equation,
aa = 2*x + 5*y == 1, I need to plot this equation so i take Reduce
[aa,y], the result is following y == 1/5 - (2 x)/5. Now I would like
to take right side of equation to plot 1/5-(2x)/5. However I do not
know how to do it.

Thank you for help,
