  1. Given, line x – 2y – 11 = 0 passes through y-axis and point (1, 4)

    So, putting x = 0 in the line equation we get the y-intercept

    0 – 2y – 11 = 0

    y = -11/2

    The co-ordinates are (0, -11/2)

    Now, the slope of the line joining the points (1, 4) and (0, -11/2) is given by

    m = y2 – y1/ x2 – x1

    = (-11/2 – 4)/ (0 – 1)

    = 19/2

    Thus, the line equation will be

    y – y1 = m (x – x1)

    y + 11/2 = 19/2 (x – 0)

    2y + 11 = 19x

    ⇒ 19x – 2y – 11 = 0
