(3, 1) then I guess the equation should be \(y=3x8\) (instead of y=3x +8). In this case if x=3 then y=3*38=1. Please check the question once more.

The equation of the line is incorrect i think
presently, none satisfies the equation

wrong question as none of the points satisfies the equation

Yes when we plot the graph, it seems that none of the points can pass through the line!!!

IF that's the case then answer is A y=3x8 1=3X38 1=98 1=1 (satisfied)

Can we find the values of (x,y) by putting x = 0 for y and vice versa? Because I tried but I didnt get the correct answer

Yes but (8/3, 8) is not any option in the given choices[/quote] I'm NOT saying that the line passes through (8/3, 8). I said that IF you put x = 0, you get the yintercept of the line, which is (0, 8). and if you put y = 0, you get the xintercept of the line, which is (8/3, 0).. I think links below should help solving Coordinate Geometry questions: 24. Coordinate Geometry
