3y -4x =24 implies the line passes through (6,0) and (0,8)

hence area of triangle formed by this line and the two axes is area of a triangle with 6 as base and 8 as height

or 1/2*8*6 = 24

Option C

+1 kudos if you like the post.

niks18 pushpitkc hi there

below is my solution but i dont get why i am getting negative value

set x = 0

3y =24

y = 8

set y = 0

-4x=24

x = -\(\frac{24}{4}\) = \(-6\)

Why everyone is getting positive 6 and i am getting negative -6 ?

Area -6*8 *0.5 = -24

have a great weekend

Hi

dave13When you plot the following points, you will find out that the sides of the

triangle are 8 and 6 respectively. Another thing to add is that the side or

the area can never be a negative number.

So, the area of this triangle is \(\frac{1}{2}*8*6 = 24\)

Hope this helps you!
