Question

 

Find the equation of the straight line parallel to x-axis and at a distance

(i). 5 units above the x-axis

(ii). 9 units below the x-axis

Solution

Correct option is

5, –9

 

(i). Equation of a straight line parallel to x-axis at a distance b units above the x-axis is y = b.    

  

(ii). Equation of a straight line parallel to x-axis at a distance b units below the x-axis is y = –b.
