A line intercepts x-axis at "a" and y-axis at "b". Is the slope of the line negative?
1) a^2 = b^2
2) a^3 = b^3
Why all you guys debate over the value "0" ?
Just try this way.
The question asked you whether the slope negative. Also it can assume that x=a and y=b Therefore, the slope can calculatyed on B/A
In statement I: if B positive, A Negative then slope is negative -- YES
if B positive, A positive then slope is positive -- NO
In statement II : it can infer from that equation and A and B MUST
have the same value. Thus, no matter how you calculate the slope is always be positive. So it is enough to answer this question which is NO.
In sum, I go for B surely. for those who doubt about the value of 0 I don't know what you are thinking of ?
