Combining I & II x intercept = 2 y intercept = 3 slope = -2/3 Although the answer is correct but explanation is flawed. Stm1. the x-intercept of line K is 2 means it passes through (2,0) Stm2. the y-intercept of line K is 3 means it passes through (0,3) Slope of a line = (y2-y1)/(x2-x1)= -3/2 in this case.
