If you observe the line , you can see if x is between 0 and 8 , y cannot be positive. Option E

(2, 6) From the line l, when x becomes less than 8, Y should be negative even if X becomes negative. when x becomes more than 8, Y should be positive. option E does not obey this. (2,6) is NOT a point on line l

Slope=12/2=6 KEEP (and here ) thank you Hi dave13, When Slope line passing through unknown point(x,y) and (0,6) or (8,0) is equal to Slope of line passing through points (0,6) and (8,0) then that point lies on the given line. This unknown point(x,y) is given in answer options. A. slope of line passing through (0,6) and (44,27)=\(\frac{27(6)}{440}\)=3/4 DISCARD B. slope of line passing through (0,6) and (12,3)=\(\frac{3(6)}{120}\)=9/12=3/4 DISCARD C.slope of line passing through (0,6) and (9,0.75)=\(\frac{0.75(6)}{90}\)=6.75/9=3/4 DISCARD D. slope of line passing through (0,6) and (4,3)=\(\frac{3(6)}{40}\)=3/4 DISCARD E. slope of line passing through (0,6) and (2,6)=\(\frac{6(6)}{20}\)=12/2=6 KEEP Since A,B,C, and D match the slope 3/4 , Hence these options are to be discarded as per question stem. Ans. (E) P.S: You will get the same result if (x,y)=(8,0).
