Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 16E

  4x2y+8=0

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

  Precalculus: Mathematics for Calculus - 6th Edition, Chapter 1.10, Problem 16E

Formula used:

Intercept form of line= xa+yb=1

Where (x,y) is a point on line and a and b are intercept cut by line on x-axis and y-axis .

As shown in figure, line cuts intercept of -2 and 4 on x-axis and y-axis respectively.

  xa+yb=1

  a=2b=4

  x2+y4=14x+(2)y(2)4=14x2y=(8)4x2y+8=0
