The curve cuts the y-axis where x=0, so at the point P(0,b). 
The tangent to the curve has slope 
dy/dx=-(b/a)e^(-x/a) =-(b/a) at P. 
The equation of this tangent is (y-b)=(-b/a)x 
which , dividing by b gives y/b - 1 = (-1/a)x 
giving x/a+y/b=1 and this is the given line. 
So the result has been shown.
