Answers (1)

$Equal\;in\;magnitude\;and\;both\;positive\\*Let\;the\;intercepts\;be\;a\;and\;b\\*\Rightarrow a=b\\*Let\;us\;find\;the\;equation\;of\;line\;cutoff\;intercepts\;from\;the\;axes.\\*By\;using\;the\;formula,\\*The\;equation\;of\;the\;line\;is\;\frac{x}{a}+\frac{y}{b}=1\\*\Rightarrow \frac{x}{a}+\frac{y}{a}=1\\* \Rightarrow x+y=a\\*The\;line\;passes\;through\;the\;point\;(5, 6)\\* Hence,\;the\;equation\;satisfies\;the\;points.\\*\Rightarrow 5+6=a\\* \Rightarrow a=11\\*\therefore\;The\;equation\;of\;the\;line\;is\;x+y=11$
