Which of the following equations represents the line

l shown in the figure?

A) 2x - 4y = 8

B) 2x + 4y = 8

C) 4x + 2y = 8

D) 2x - 4y = -8

E) 4x - 2y = -8

The line passes through (4, 0) and (0, 2). Its equation will be

y - 0 = (2 - 0)/(0 - 4) * (x - 4)

-2y = x - 4

x + 2y = 4

which is the same as 2x + 4y = 8

Answer (B)
