A line goes through (2,3),and (8,-2). The line has an X intercept of P and a y intercept of Q. Let the origin be O. Find the area of Triangle OPQ.

First, find the equation of the line: y= -5/6 x + 4 2/3

then P = 84/15 Q = 4 2/3

Now, YOU should be able to calculate the area of the right triangle!
