There are infinitely many lines that pass through that point (one example:

Check out this interactive graph for an idea of what this would look like.

#### Explanation:

There are infinitely many lines that could pass through a given point. For example, consider the diagram below:

*All* of those lines pass through the point

Why? Well, let's set up a point-slope equation for a line going through

For each different value of
