# Find the Equation to the Straight Line Cutting off Intercepts 3 and 2 from the Axes. - Mathematics

Find the equation to the straight line cutting off intercepts 3 and 2 from the axes.

#### Solution

Here, a = 3, b = 2
So, the equation of the line is

$\frac{x}{a} + \frac{y}{b} = 1$

$\Rightarrow \frac{x}{3} + \frac{y}{2} = 1$

$\Rightarrow 2x + 3y - 6 = 0$
