Reduce the equation to:
(i) slope - intercept form and find slope and y - intercept;
(ii) Intercept form and find intercept on the axes
(iii) The normal form and find p and α.
This is the slope intercept form of the given line.
Hence, slope = - √3 and y - intercept = - 2
Dividing both sides by - 2
Hence, the intercept form of the given line. Here, x - intercept = - 23 and y - intercept = - 2
Dividing both sides by
This is the normal form of the given line.
Hence, p = 1 cos and sinα = - 1/2
Hence, α = 210
