# Reduce the equation √ 3 x + y + 2 = 0 to intercept form and find intercept on the axes . - Mathematics

Reduce the equation$\sqrt{3}$ x + y + 2 = 0 to intercept form and find intercept on the axes.

#### Solution

$\sqrt{3}$ x + y + 2 = 0

$\Rightarrow \sqrt{3}x + y = - 2$

$\Rightarrow \frac{\sqrt{3}x}{- 2} + \frac{y}{- 2} = 1 \left[ \text { Dividing both sides by } - 2 \right]$

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

This is the intercept form of the given line.
Here, x-intercept = $- \frac{2}{\sqrt{3}}$ and y-intercept = $-$2

Is there an error in this question or solution?
