# Extend the line segment on both sides to meet the coordinate axes. What are the coordinates of the points where this line meets the x-axis and the y-axis

**Solution:**

The graph below shows the two points and the line passing through them.

The line passing through points (2,4) and (4,2) intersects with the x axis at B the coordinates of which are (6,0). The line intersects at y axis at point A which has the coordinates (0,6).

**✦ Try This: **Plot the points (3, 5) and (5, 3) on a graph paper, then draw a line segment joining these two points. Extend the line segment on both sides to meet the coordinate axes. What are the coordinates of the points where this line meets the x-axis and the y-axis?

The points (3,5) and (5,3) are plotted as shown below.

The point where the line meets the x-axis is B, the coordinates of which are (8,0). The line meets the y-axis at point A which has the coordinates (0,8).
