Answer :

Given equation is 3x - 4y +12 = 0


We can rewrite it as 3x - 4y = -12




This equation is in the slope intercept form i.e. in the form + = 1


Where, x-intercept = -4 and y-intercept = 3


Two points are: (-4, 0) on the x-axis and (0, 3) on y-axis


We know distance between two points is



Length of the line




= 5


Conclusion: Length of the portion of the line intercepted between the axes is 5
