Based on the two points on the line (0,3) and (6,0) we can find the equation of the line. Y intercept \(= 3\)Slope \(= \frac{1}{2}\) Equation: \(y = mx + c\) \(y = \frac{1}{2} * 4 + 3\) \(y = 2 + 3\) \(y = 1\) Answer is B

So, 3 = c eq: y = (1/2)x + 3 Now to find the coordinates of point E, x = 4 y = (1/2) * 4 +3 = 1

The Simplest way is to make the line Equation  y=1/2x+3 Now Substituing value, answer will be 1

Using the two points already given, you can find the equation of the line which is x + 2y = 6. Substituting, the value of x to be 4, we can get the ycoordinate 1. Hence , B is the solution Sent from my Lenovo A7000a using GMAT Club Forum mobile app

This can be easily answered without the use of any calculation.The midpoint of the given line is (3,1.5).Since the x coord is 4 any value >= 1.5 is out. Since y cant be negative the only other option is b.

It doesnt need any calculation for this question. From the diagram we can see that for every unit increase in X, Y decreases by 0.5 units.
When X is 0, Y is 3, When X is 1, Y is 2.5, When X is 2, Y is 2, When X is 3, Y is 1.5, When X is 4, Y is 1, <  which is our answer. When X is 5, Y is 0.5, When X is 6, Y is 0

This question can also be solved using ratio Suppose E divides the given line in X:Y ratio then x coordinate is given by 4=(x*6=y*0)/(x+y) 6x=4x+4y x/y =2 now we have to find y=(2*0+1*3)\(2+1)=1 hence b
