Formula used:
Point-slope form of line:
(y2y1)=m(x2x1)
So, by the Point-Slope form of line the equation of line is given below:
(98)=m(64)
17=m×2
2m=17
m=172
Now m=172 and take any points to find the linear equation.
(x1,y1)=(4,8)andm=172
(yy1)=m(xx1)
(y8)=172(x4)
(y8)=17x2+34
y=17x2+34+8
y=17x2+42
y=17x+842
2y=17x84
So, the graph is given below:
