The ordinate of a point is twice its abscissa and the point lies on the line 7x - 3y = 8. What are the coordinates of the point?
Let, the abscissa x = k and the ordinate y = 2k.
Putting the value in the given equation:
7(k) - 3(2k) = 8
Thus, Abcissa x = k = 8 and ordinate y = 2k = 16.
Thus, the given point is (8,16).
