So equal intersept mean tan45 = m = 1

do the equation of line

is

SO USING

(y - y₁)=m(x - x₁) where y₁ = -3 , x₁ = 5 , m = 1

(y+3)=1(x - 5)

x - y = 8__ANSWER__

(y+3)=1(x - 5)

The Brainliest Answer!

let the points be (0,m) and (m,0)

slope = (0-m)/(m-0) = -1

the line is

(y-m) = -1*(x-m)

it passes through (5,-3)

5-m = -1*(-3-m)

=>5-m=3+m

=>2m=2

=>m=1

line is y-1 = -1*(x-1)

=>y-1 = 1-x

=>x+y=2
