For a given straight line on a coordinate plane, the corresponding equation must be specified.


For a given straight line on a coordinate plane, the corresponding equation must be specified. (Example for this math problem)


For a given straight line the equation of the line is to be determined. The straight line is given in a coordinate system, the slope and Y-axis intercept can be read off there.

The straight line equation and the dimensions of the coordinate system are designed in such a way that the straight line can be drawn without particular difficulties. The Y-axis intercept, for example, can be selected to lie on only full or even half coordinate plane squares (vertical divisions). It is preselectable whether the straight line may, may not or even must pass through the origin.

With regard to the coordinate system, it can be set whether only quadrant one is to be swept with positive X and Y coordinates, or also the quadrants containing coordinates with negative signs. The coordinate system can be output in three different sizes.

The slope is always such that a slope triangle would be a maximum of four boxes wide, i.e. would have a divisor of maximum four. It can be limited to only positive or only negative slope, with or without the possibility of a slope of zero.
