I suggest that u do not give the answer since the start ;)

The equation of the line is : y = -3/5*x+30

Thus, all points between the 2 points such as described in the problem statment are represented by X growing from 0 to 50 with a step of 5.

Hence, answer is 50/5 + 1 = 11.

The slope of this line is 3/5 i.e. for every 5 value increase in x, there is a 3 value increase in y.

You can count the number of multiples of 3 between 0 and 30 as 10.

Including (0,0) there are 11 points.


Sorry haas_mba07... I think that the slope is negative : -3/5 and the point (0,0) is not included on the line :)
