Spot 2 points on a graph and draw a line joining those points.

#### Explanation:

Alright, so first things first, let's compare this with the standard equation of a line:

Now pick a simple integer (preferably a multiple of 4 because x is divided by 4 in the equation) like

So another point is

Now join
