NCERT EXERCISE 10.2 |

**Question 7.** Passing through the points (–1, 1) and (2, – 4).

Slope intercept form and meaning of intercept

**Question 5.** (using Slope intercept form) Intersecting the *x*-axis at a distance of 3 units to the left of origin with slope –2.

**Question 6.** (using Slope intercept form) Intersecting the *y*-axis at a distance of 2 units above the origin and making an angle of 30 with positive direction of the *x*-axis.

Intercept form

Normal Form of Straight Line

**Question 8.** (using Normal Form) Perpendicular distance from the origin is 5 units and the angle made by the perpendicular with the positive *x*-axis is 30.
