Line L and Line M are in xy-plane such that neither of these is parallel to either x-axis or y-axis.Is the x-intercept of the line L greater than that of the line M?
(1)The y-intercept of the line L is greater than the y-intercept of the line M
(2)The lines L and M are parallel to each other.
Requesting ur help..

So basically what this question asks is that Is the x-intercept of the line L greater than that of the line M
(1)The y-intercept of the line L is greater than the y-intercept of the line M
As per the question the lines will be intersecting each other, and if you visualize you can see that if you slant the line M(at a greater angle) you can get a x intercept greater than L, and when you dont slant the line M, you can get the x intercept smaller than L.
(2)The lines L and M are parallel to each other.
This doesn't tell us anything about the orientation of the intercepts
Combination of both, will give u two regions, if you take slope as +ive and draw both lines in the 1st region, x intercept of line l(x=4, y = 6) will be greater than x intercept of line m(x=3 and y=5) just join these points.
But when you draw the same lines in 2nd region, x intercept of line l (y=6, x =-4) will be less than x intercept of m(y=5, x =-3)
Making both the statements insufficient to answer.
