I've changed some of the simplification rules in the advice, corrected the calculation for the gradient and other inconsistencies with regards to the order of points A and B. Fixed some typos.

Thank you for the follow up advice, I'm hoping it's even better now

Much better!
One more thing... points A and B should be labelled the other way round. Let's give your question the context of driving in a car: if you travel from A to B then, as it stands, the gradient is positive. Related to this, you do not give any indication where the equation for the gradient comes from. You could say something like, the gradient is the ratio of the vertical change ($y2y1$) to the horizontal change ($x2x1$).

Brad, why not split this into two parts, the first asking for the gradient and intercept and the second the equation. The student can then see if they are on the right lines. You could also then use adaptive marking (ro replace m and c) in the second part.

Thank you for the feedback. I have acted on all the points you made there and I will apply these to the other 3 versions of this question too.

Good work with the adaptive axis ranges, however in some cases the x axis is objectionably at edge of the board, as the maximum of the y range evaluates to 0. Use the javascript function
Math.max()
to set a minimum range displayed above the axis, e.g.Math.max(yb+4,2)
would set the 'ymax' to a minimum of 2.You could use a similar method to check that the intercept is on the board (it currently isn't always).
Check your spelling, e.g. "coordiantes" and that your sentences read fluidly, e.g. "find the straight line equation of the line running through these points" can be written "find the equation of the straight line running through these points" and so on.

Test that the marking algorithm works
Check that the marking algorithm works with different sets of variables and student answers using the interface below.
Create unit tests to save expected results and to document how the algorithm should work.
There's an error which means the marking algorithm can't run:

When you need to change the way this part works beyond the available options, you can write JavaScript code to be executed at the times described below.
To account for errors made by the student in earlier calculations, replace question variables with answers to earlier parts.
In order to create a variable replacement, you must define at least one variable and one other part.
Variable  Answer to use  Must be answered?  

The variable replacements you've chosen will cause the following variables to be regenerated each time the student submits an answer to this part:
These variables have some random elements, which means they're not guaranteed to have the same value each time the student submits an answer. You should define new variables to store the random elements, so that they remain the same each time this part is marked.
