9-73.

Line

*m*has intercepts (−7, 0) and (0, −2).Find the equation of line

*m*.Is the point (49, −16) also on line

*m*? How do you know?

You are given the *y*-intercept. Calculate the slope and write the equation.

Substitute the given point into the equation you wrote in part (a). Do you get a true statement?
