Given the values of m and c for the equation of a line y = (m * x) + c, the task is to find whether the point (x, y) lies on the given line.
Input: m = 3, c = 2, x = 1, y = 5
m * x + c = 3 * 1 + 2 = 3 + 2 = 5 which is equal to y
Hence, the given point satisfies the line’s equation
Input: m = 5, c = 2, x = 2, y = 5
Approach: In order for the given point to lie on the line, it must satisfy the equation of the line. Check whether y = (m * x) + c holds true.
Below is the implementation of the above approach:
