Find the equation of the parallel to x–axis and passing through (3, –5).

Asked by Aaryan | 1 year ago |  103

##### Solution :-

Given: A line which is parallel to x–axis and passing through (3, –5)

By using the formula,

The equation of line: [y – y1 = m(x – x1)]

We know that the parallel lines have equal slopes

And, the slope of x–axis is always 0

Then

The slope of line, m = 0

Coordinates of line are (x1, y1) = (3, –5)

The equation of line = y – y1 = m(x – x1)

Now, substitute the values, we get

y – (– 5) = 0(x – 3)

y + 5 = 0

The equation of line is y + 5 = 0
