# In Exercises 9 to 24, find an equation of the line described. Leave the solution in the form Ax+By = C .The line has intercepts a = - 3 and b = 5 .

To determine

Find the equation of the line which has intercepts a=-3 and b=5

Explanation

If a and b are the X and Y intercepts of a line then the equation of the line can be written as,

xa+yb=1

Substitute a=-3 and b=5 in xa+yb=1

x-3+y5=1

Using -15 LCM on left hand side, x-3+y5=1 can be modified as,

x×5-3×5+y×-35×-3
