# Check whether two points (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) lie on same side of a given line or not

Given three integers **a**, **b** and **c** which represents coefficients of the equation of a line **a * x + b * y – c = 0**. Given two integer points **(x1, y1)** and **(x2, y2)**. The task is to determine whether the points** (x1, y1)** and **(x2, y2)** lie on the same side of the given line or not.**Examples:**

Input :a = 1, b = 1, c = 1, x1 = 1, y1 = 1, x2 = 1, y2 = 2Output :yes

On applying (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) on a * x + b * y – c, gives 1 and 2 respectively both of which have the same sign, hence both the points lie on same side of the line.Input :a = 1, b = 1, c = 1, x1 = 1, y1 = 1, x2 = 0, y2 = 0Output :no

**Approach :** Apply both the points on given line equation and check if the obtained values belong to same parity or not.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
