If the point(2,1)lies on the line 5x-2y=2k,find k.Also find one more solution for the given equation

Expert Answer:

(2,1) lies on the given line so it will satisfy the given equation.
therefore
10 - 2 = 2k
k =4
 
so, the equation becomes
5x - 2y = 8
 
One more solution can be obtained by putting  x = 0.
so,
2y = -8
y = -4
Thus, (0, -4) is also a solution of the given equation.
