Hi Hatch,

This would require you to know what the "point-slope" form of a linear equation looks like. I assume you know that from your studies.

Point-Slope Form: $(y-y_1)=m(x-x_1)$

You're going to have to find the slope of the graph of your given linear equation. Can you do that? Can you solve the equation for y to put it in slope-intercept form?

If you can do all of the above, then you simply substitute the point coordinates you have for $x_1$ and $y_1$, and the slope you just found for $m$

Try it.
