a straight line makes an intercept on the y axis twice as long as that on the x axis and is at a unit distance from the origin.determine its equation (pls slove it)

let the intercept on x axis be a therefore intercept on y axis is 2a.

therefore by INTERCEPT FORMx/a + y/2a= 1by LCM2x+y=2aPERPENDICULAR DISTACE FROM A LINE FROM ORIGIN IS 1therfore 1=|-2a|/ 5^1/2get a and put in the equation above.
