**Quote:**

A line is graphed on a coordinate plane. How many times less is the distance between the y-intercept and the x-axis than the distance between the x-intercept and the y-axis?

(1) The slope of the line is −9/13.

(2) The y-intercept is located at (0, 26).

since we need to know HOW MANY TIMES LESS is the distance, we do not need to find a value for the distance, but for a number which multiplies the y intercept distance from the x-ax.

(2) does not provide us with the x intercept. insuff

(1) does provide us with the slope. if, for example the y intercept is 9, we know that the x intercept is at x=13. if the y intercept is 4,5, we know that the x intercept is at 6,5. its the sample multiple. since all parallels of THIS exact line contain the same multiple, the parallel going through 0 also has the same multiple.

so A is suff
