#### Answer:

Contd.

#### Explanation:

We will use the following well-known

**Result :** The eqn. of a line

intersection of the lines

the form

Result :

Let equation of any straight line passing through the point of intersection of two given straight line be

If the straight be parallel to the straight line

then

Inserting the value of k in [1]

This is the equation of the required straight line.

#### Answer:

#### Explanation:

The first step is to find the point of intersection of the 2 lines.

#"Using the "color(blue)"elimination method"# That is we attempt to eliminate the x or y term from the equations leaving us with an equation in 1 variable which we can solve.

Labelling the equations.

#color(red)(7x)color(magenta)(-3y)-19=0to(1)#

#color(red)(3x)color(magenta)(+2y)+5=0to(2)#

#"Note:" color(magenta)(-3y)xx2=color(magenta)(-6y)" and "color(magenta)(2y)xx3=color(magenta)(6y)# That is the y terms have the same coefficient but with opposing signs. Hence summing them will result in their elimination.

#(1)xx2: 14x-6y-38=0to(3)#

#(2)xx3: 9x+6y+15=0to(4)#
