Solution

The correct option is C y=0.2x
Given lines are x+2y=7 ......... (1) and xy=4 ........ (2)

To find the point of intersection, we need to solve the equations simultaneously.

from eq(2) we get x = y + 4

substitute the value of x in the eq(1) we get the value of y and then we can get the value of x from any equation, so

By solving the equations (1) and (2) we get
x=5 and y=1.

So, the point of intersection is (5,1)

Equation of line passing through (5,1) and (0,0) will be

yy1xx1=y2y1x2x1

y1x5=15

5y5=x5

y=0.2x is the required equation of the line.
