I have an idea for the second part. ii) line t has equal intercepts and passes through (5, -3) (x/a)+(y/b)=1 If the intercepts are equal, then a = b. The equation becomes: x/a + y/a = 1 The line passes through (5,-3) 5/a + (-3)/a = 1 Multiply through by a to get: 5 - 3 = a 2 = a The equation is: x/2 + y/2 = 1 which can be written as: y = 2 - x @AliLnn See what you think about this.
