To get the length of BO, Substitute x=0 in equation y = 9x/10 + k, We get y=k . Hence BO= k

To get the length of AO, Substitute y=0 in th equation above and you get x= -10k/9 (Distance (AO= 10k/9)) (As distance can never be a negative quantity)

Clearly from above two values we know AO>BO

Correct Answer is A

no need to find exact values, i think

M is the rate of change in y, for a change in x

since m is 9/10... for every 10 unit increase in x, y increases by 9... so OB (height of the triangle) will be shorter than OA (base)

hence A Re: In the figure to the right, the equation of the line is y = 9x/10 + k   [#permalink] 14 Apr 2019, 01:18
