Question

# If a straight line passing through the point $$P(-3, 4)$$ is such that its intercepted portion between the coordinate axes is bisected at P, then its equation is:

A
xy+7=0
B
3x4y+25=0
C
4x+3y=0
D
4x3y+24=0

Solution

## The correct option is D $$4x - 3y + 24 = 0$$Let the line be $$\dfrac{x}{a} + \dfrac{y}{b} = 1$$$$(-3, 4) = \left [ \dfrac{a}{2} , \dfrac{b}{2} \right]$$$$a = -6, b = 8$$equation of line is $$4x - 3y + 24 = 0$$Maths
