Many a times in the pratice tests we are seeing in Coordinate Geometry these types of questions.

If 2 lines are given L and M and if the y-intercept of L is greater than that of M then can we comment on the slopes of L and M based on the values of y-intercepts? (like if the slopes are +ve or -ve)

And the 2nd question is vice-versa.

Can we comment on the y-intercept of a line based on the slope of the line?

Thanks!

No we cannot...

Equation for line is Y=mX + C where c is Y intercept and m is slope.

even for C being different, M can be same for two lines, which means slope can be same for any C.

Slope of the line m= tan@, where @ is the angle formed by the line on X axix, whereas C is to do with Y axis.

hope this clarify

IMO, you would just get values of the constant and nothing about slope so one can not commet on the slope of the line
