Find the equation to the straight line which passes through the point (5, 6) and has intercepts on the axesEqual in magnitude but opposite in sign

Given:

Here, b = -a

To find:

The equation of line cutoff intercepts from the axes.

Explanation:

So, the equation of the line is

Formula used:

x – y =a

The line passes through the point (5, 6) So equation satisfy the points,

5 – 6 = a

a = -1

The equation of the line is x – y = -1
