You have two points, so you can write an equation of a straight line in the form or y = mx + b

First find the slope: m =(220-178)/(90-76)

Once you have the slope. Use it and one of the points to find the equation of the line.

To interpret the slope the numerator represents the gallons of water/per degree.
