# Find the equation of the line which cuts off intercepts -3 and 5 on the x-axis and y-axis respectively.

Answer :

To Find: The equation of a line with intercepts -3 and 5 on the x-axis and y-axis respectively.

Given :Let a and b be the intercepts on x-axis and y-axis respectively.

Then, the x-intercept is a = -3

y-intercept is b = 5

Formula used:

we know that intercept form of a line is given by:

= 1

= 1

5x-3y = -15

5x - 3y + 15 = 0

Hence 5x - 3y + 15 = 0 is the required equation of the given line.
