    So I was doing the question.
    I got something but I'm not sure if I can do anything more with it. Am I attempting it in a right way?

    Looking at the first part. It's fine as far as it goes, but you've not given the equation of the line, which is what the question asks for.

    Having got the vector for a general point, if you call the first coordinate x, and the second y, then you have two equations and need to eliminate p, and q, to get x in terms of y.

    Oh, I didn't realise that 0.36/0.48=0.48/0.64
    Thank you!
