gradient$= \frac{12}{7}$
$y = \frac{12}{7} x - \frac{12}{7}$

Explanation:

$\text{gradient "= "change in y"/"change in x}$

$\frac{12 - 0}{8 - 1} = \frac{12}{7}$

$y = m x + c$

You can use a point to work out the equation of the

$y - 0 = \frac{12}{7} \left(x - 1\right)$
$y = \frac{12}{7} x - \frac{12}{7}$
