A. $$6x = -4y + 8$$

B. $$-y = (\frac{3}{2})x + 5$$

C. $$3y = (- \frac{9}{2})x - 9$$

In slope-intercept form, 3x+2y-4=0 ==> y = -$$\frac{3}{2}$$x + 2

A line parallel to this line must have a slope of -1.5

5x−y+10=0 ==> y = 5x + 10 ==> To find the x-intercept, let y = 0 ==> x = -2

From the options given, C has a slope of -1.5 and x-intercept of -2, so option C is the answer.

Line P is described by the equation 3x+2y−4=0. Which of the following lines is parallel to P and has the same x-intercept as the line 5x−y+10=0?

to be parallel the slope must be -3/2 and the y intercept should not be 2, x intercept= -2

A,B and C have the same slope

but only option C has the same X-intercept

option C is the correct option!!

for the given line P ; $$3x + 2y - 4 = 0$$.
y = -3/2x+2
slope = -1.5 and the x intercept for $$5x - y + 10 = 0$$ is y =0 x=-2
out of given options
option C has slope = -1.5 i.e it is ll to line P and also has x intercept = -2
IMO C

Line P is described by the equation 3x+2y−4=0. Which of the following lines is parallel to P and has the same x-intercept as the line 5x−y+10=0?

Ans: Slope of line P=-3/2
X-intercept of 5x-y+10=0 is -2

First lets check for x- intercept. Eliminate A&b
Second, lets check for slope for the remaining three eq. C is the ans

A. 6x=−4y+86x=−4y+8

B. −y=(32)x+5−y=(32)x+5

C. 3y=(−92)x−93y=(−92)x−9

D. 4x+6y+8=04x+6y+8=0

E. 6x−4y=−12

intercept form of a line is given by x/a + y/b = 1 , a and b are x and y intercept respectively . hence, the x intercept of required line is -2 or the line passses through (-2,0). Slope of required line is -3/2
hence required line is (Y-0) = slope* (X- (-2))
----> Y = -3/2 * (X + 2)
