Mathematics

The equation of a straight line passing through the point $(2,-7)$ and parallel to x-axis is

$y=-7$

SOLUTION
Consider the given points.
$(2, -7)$

Since, this line parallel to $x-axis$ means that
$slope\ (m)=0$

We know that the equation of the line
$y-y_1=m(x-x_1)$

So,
$y-(-7)=0(x-2)$

$y+7=0$

$y=-7$

You're just one step away

Read the following two statements which are taken as axioms:
(i) If two lines intersect each other, then the vertically opposite angles are not equal.
(ii) If a ray stands on a line, then the sum of two adjacent angles so formed is equal to $180^0$.
