  1. Excellent question. You could rearrange the equation to point slope format, and state the y intercept, but that just begs the question: What point are they talking about.

  2. Was there another equation? What we're looking at is the equation of a line, not a point. You'd need a second line to define a point, which would be the intersection of the two (assuming there was an intersection, of course).
