## Answers ( No )

To solve this problem, we have to start with the general formula for the equation of a straight line.

The equation of a straight line is

where is the gradient and is the intercept on the y axis.

The gradient is computed by

The next step is to find the value of , by picking the point and substituting it into the equation above together with the gradient.

The equation of the line is
