Find the eq

Answer :

We know that equation of the line making intercepts a and b on x-and y-axis, respectively, is


Given that the line cuts off equal intercepts on the coordinate axes i.e. a = b.


So,


x + y = a (1)


Given point = (2, 3)


2 + 3 = a


a = 5


Substituting a value in (1),


x + y = 5


x + y 5 = 0


Ans. The equation of the line is x + y – 5 = 0.
