The tangent of the angle that a straight line makes with the x-axis is 2.

If the point (5,4) lies on this line, find where the line crosses the x-axis and the y-axis

Answer

The tangent represents the slope m of your line.
So the equation of your line can be found y-4=2(x-5) using the coordinates of your point.
So y=2x-6 set x=0 you get y=-6 set y=0 you get x=3
