slope of line is: -3/5x and y-intercept is 50. eq is y=-3/5x+50. insert all possible values from 0 to 50. you will see that there are 11 (0 included) that result in an integer for y. so its 11...

y=-3/5x+50
This is incorrect

y=-3/5x+30 is the correct equation ( x/a+y/b =1 is the equation where a and b are x & y intercepts )

y intercept is 30 not 50

so eq is y=-3/5x+ 30 so x has to be multiple of 5 <= 50 including 0 which gives answer as 11

So i think answer is 11

The equation of the line is x/50 + y/30 = 1

For PQ, x>0,y>0

3x+5y = 150

y = 30 - 3x/5

x needs to be a multiple of 5 (0,5,10...50) => 11 such points
