#### Explanation:

Consider the following **Results** :

If we use these Results, we can immediately write the eqn. of reqd.

line as

But, for the help of these Results, we can derive the eqn. as under :

Eqn. of the given line

So, the slope of this line is

to given line) must be

Hence, by the Slope-Pt. Form of line, the eqn. of reqd. line is,
