# The joint equation of the pair of lines passing through (2,3) and parallel to the coordinate axes is - HSC Arts 12th Board Exam - Mathematics and Statistics

ConceptPair of Straight Lines Pair of Lines Not Passing Through Origin-combined Equation of Any Two Lines

#### Question

The joint equation of the pair of lines passing through (2,3) and parallel to the coordinate axes is

1.  xy -3x - 2y + 6 = 0
2. xy +3x + 2y + 6 = 0
3. xy = 0
4. xy - 3x - 2y - 6 = 0

#### Solution

(a)
Equation of the coordinate axes are x = 0 and y = 0.
The equations of the lines passing through (2, 3) and parallel to coordinate axes are,
x = 2 and y = 3.
i.e. x - 2 = 0 and y - 3 = 0
The joint equation is given as

(x-2)(y-3)=0

xy-3x-2y+6=0

Is there an error in this question or solution?
