Question 13 : The equation of the straight line passing through the point M (-5,1), such that the portion of it between the axes is divided by the point M in to two equal halves, is

- 10y - 8x = 80
- 8y + 10x = 80
- 10y + 8x = 80
- 8y + 10x + 80 = 0

The point P divides AB into 2 halves.

AP = PB

A is on the x axis, Hence Point A (h,0)

B is on the Y axis, Hence Point B (0,k)

We need to use midpoint formula.

[\\frac{(h + 0)}{2}) , \\frac{(k + 0)}{2})] = (-5 , 4)

\\frac{h}{2}) = - 5

h = -10

\\frac{k}{2} = 4

k = 8

Hence the Y intercept is 8 and X intercept is - 10.

\\frac{x}{-10}) + \\frac{y}{8}) = 1

-8x + 10y = 80

The equation is -8x + 10y = 80

The question is **" The equation of the straight line passing through the point M (-5,1), such that the portion of it between the axes is divided by the point M in to two equal halves, is " **

Choice A is the correct answer.
