Write an equation for a line that passess through the point (8,5)?
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.
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
