I thought I did something wrong, perhaps said something I shouldn't have said, or something of that sort.

Yes ofcourse,

Is that a thing to ask? :)

No I haven't figured out anything

Okay...look at the equation you get,\[p(x-x_0)+q(y-y_0)=0\]then\[(y-y_0)=-\frac{p(x-x_0)}{q}\]The left-hand side is an integer, and you're told that p and q are relatively prime, so for the right-hand side to remain an integer, it must be that q divides (x-x_0).

a(x-x0)+b(y-y0)=0 b(x-x0) = -a(y-y0) b/d=q; a/d=p q(y-y0) = -p(x-x0) (y-y0) = -p (x-x0)/q y-y0 =

Just keep thinking of NUMBERS. These equations are about NUMBERS.

Yeah, I understand it now. Infact as I told, I should have figured this thing myself. But couldn't

I mean it is simple enough

And I shouldn't have asked it
