Gradient (

Coordinates located on the line:

Remember the general linear equation of

We can use the method of substitution to find the y-intercept (c) in the linear equation first.

As we substitute the coordinates & gradient in the general linear equation of

Now that we know the y-intercept (c) of the linear equation, we can form the linear equation by adding the gradient and y-intercept into the general equation of

Thus, the linear equation would be
