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
we know that intercept form of a line is given by:
5x-3y = -15
5x - 3y + 15 = 0
Hence 5x - 3y + 15 = 0 is the required equation of the given line.
