you've posted and equation and a point (i'm guessing)... but no question

that is an equation I am suppose to use substitution and determine whether the point is on the line (because I am given a line and a point)

there's a question... so if you input the point to the equation do you get a true statement?

so the point is given in a format.. x is first and y is second. so what's the x value of the point A? the y value of A?

excellent! now, in you're given equation you have y = x+1, right? so what you do is substitute the values of x and y from your point A into the equation and evaluate to see if it makes a true statement, in which case the value on the left side of the equation will equal the value on the right side of the equation.
