    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let X – intercept = a

    Y – intercept = b

    By hypothasis a + b = 0

    ⇒ b = – a

    Intercept form (x/a) + (y/b) = 1

    ⇒ (x/a) + (y/-a) = 1

    ⇒ x – y = a

    But this straight line passing through (–2, 4).

    ∴ – 2 – 4 = a

    ⇒ a = – 6

    ∴ Required straight line equation is

    x – y = – 6

    ⇒ x – y + 6 = 0
