(1) 8x + 5y = 40
(2) 8x – 5y = 40
(3) x = 8
(4) y = 5

Question 10.
The equation of a line passing through the origin and perpendicular to the line lx -3y + 4 = 0 is
(1) 7x – 3y + 4 = 0
(2) 3x – 7y + 4 = 0
(3) 3x + 7y = 0
(4) 7x – 3y = 0
(3) 3x + 7y = 0

= $$\frac { -7 }{ -3 }$$ = $$\frac { 7 }{ 3 }$$
Slope of its ⊥r = $$\frac { -3 }{ 7 }$$
The line passes through (0,0)
Equation of a line is
y – y1 = m(x – x1)
y – 0 = $$\frac { -3 }{ 7 }$$ (x – 0)
y = $$\frac { -3 }{ 7 }$$ x ⇒ 7y = -3x
3x + 7y = 0

(3) The slope is 0.5 and they intercept is 1.6
(4) The slope is 5 and the y intercept is 2.6
(1) The slope is 0.5 and they intercept is 2.6
Hint:
8y = 4x + 21
y = $$\frac { 4 }{ 8 }$$ x + $$\frac { 21 }{ 8 }$$
