If bx + cy = a,where a,b,c are of the same sign,be a line such that the area enclosed by the line and the axes of reference is 1/8 sq. unit then
A) b,a,c are in geometric progression.
B) b,2a,c are in geometric progression.
C) b,a/2,c are in arithmetic progression.

Your equation of line is
Sustitute respectively y and x are 0 ,to get x and y interceps.
y=0 , `x=a/b`
Area of triangle formed by line and axes
This implies b,2a,c are geometric progression
Appropriate answer be B
D is ruled out because condition a,b,c are of the same sign.
