(7,2); (8,6); (9,10)

Work Step by Step

Answers may vary as there are infinite points on a line. The best way to do this problem is to start at the given point and then use the slope to increase each x and y value to find other points on the line. Since the slope is 4 (which equals 4/1), this means we add 1 to the x value and 4 to the y value to get (7,2). We repeat this process with (7,2) to get the next point, and then repeat this process with the next point to get the third point.
