Answer :

Given:


2x – 7y + 11 = 0 and x + 3y – 8 = 0


To find:


The equation of the line passing through the point of intersection of 2x – 7y + 11 = 0 and x + 3y – 8 = 0 and is parallel to (i) x = axis (ii) y-axis.


Explanation:


The equation of the straight line passing through the points of intersection of 2x 7y + 11 = 0 and x + 3y 8 = 0 is given below:


2x 7y + 11 + λ(x + 3y 8) = 0


(2 + λ)x + ( 7 + 3λ)y + 11 8λ = 0
(i) The required line is parallel to the x-axis. So, the coefficient of x should be zero.


2 + λ = 0


λ = -2


Hence, the equation of the required line is


0 + ( 7 6)y + 11 + 16 = 0


13y 27 = 0


(ii) The required line is parallel to the y-axis. So, the coefficient of y should be zero.


-7 + 3λ = 0


λ


Hence, the equation of the required line is



13x – 23 = 0
