To find the slope of line k

Statement 1

The x–intercept of k is 3

=> the line k passes through the point (3,0) since y-coordinate is 0 where the line intersects x axis

There are infinite possible lines that can pass through a single point. Some of them have positive slope and some negative slope

Statement 1 is not sufficient

Statement 2

The y–intercept of k is -2

=> the line k passes through the point (0,-2) since x-coordinate is 0 where the line intersects y axis

There are infinite possible lines that can pass through a single point. Some of them have positive slope and some negative slope

Statement 2 is not sufficient

Combining statements 1 and 2

The line k passes through the points (3,0) and (0,-2)

Slope of line k is $$\frac{0-(-2)}{3-0} = \frac{2}{3}$$

Statements 1 and 2 together are sufficient

Hence option C

You need two points to define a line so yeah you need both statements.

workout : Answer is C no doubt. Thankyou for the solution.
But the last line is wrong. Slope of a line is (y2-y1)/(x2-x1) so slope will be 2/3
