We can see a line in red color with its equation given alongside. General equation of a line is given by ax+by+c=0where a, b and c are constants. . We can change the values of a, b and c using their corresponding slide bars.. There are two points present on this line. One is A (green color) and the other is B (pink color). A is the point where the line cuts the y axis and B is the point where the line cuts the x axis. Observe how the position of the line changes by changing values ofa,b and c

Questions to think about
1. What do we observe when we change the value of a?
2. What do we observe when we change the value of b?
3. What do we observe when we change the value of c?
