You can use this relation to check the given heights of the beam at A and B, which are 2 in and 3 in, respectively.

The relation is already developed and given to you. I suspect the problem is asking you to do something besides developing this relation.

I understand that the relationship has been developed, the part I am confused about is that how he has derived this relationship.

So the relationship is the equation of the straight line through the points (0,ha) and (L,hb).

Plug the values into the standard equation for a line in the form (y-y0) = m(x-x0).

x0 = 0, y0 = ha, and the slope m = (hb-ha)/L.
