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

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!
