Solutions

Chapter B, Problem 18E
To determine

To find: The equation of the line for the given conditions.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 18E

The equation of the line is y=34x6.

Explanation of Solution

Given:

The required is passing through x intercept 8 and y intercept 6.

Property used:

The equation of the line passes through the point (x1,y1) and having slope m is, yy1=m(xx1).

The equation of the line with slope m and y intercept b is, y=mx+b.

Calculation:

To find the slope, solve the equation, consider the intercepts as points (1,0) and (0,3)

yy1=m(xx1)60=m(0(8))68=m34=m

Therefore, m=34.

Substitute the values in the property mentioned above.

m=34, b=6Therefore,y=34x6

Thus, the equation of the line is y=34x6.
