15) Find the equation of the straight line passing through the point (5, -3) and whose intercepts on the axes are equal in magnitude but opposite in sign. Solution

16) Find the equation of the line passing through the point (9, -1) and having its x-intercept thrice as its y-intercept. Solution

17) A straight line cuts the coordinate axes at A and B. If the midpoint of AB is (3, 2), then find the equation of AB. Solution

18) Find the equation of the line passing through (22, -6) and having intercept on x-axis exceeds the intercept on y-axis by 5. Solution

19) If A(3, 6) and C(-1, 2) are two vertices of a rhombus ABCD, then find the equation of straight line that lies along the diagonal BD. Solution

20) Find the equation of the line whose gradient is 3/2 and which passes through P, where P divides the line segment joining A(-2, 6) and B (3, -4) in the ratio 2 : 3 internally. Solution
