Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you want any point, you can let x=0 to get 6y=2 y=1/3 you would have the point (1, 1/3) on the line

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0err that was a mistake, the point i got was (0, 1/3) but (1, 1/3) might be a point... let's see :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if x=1, then 3+6y=2 6y= 1 y= 1/6 So (1, 1/3) would not lie on th eline

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmmm other answer choices were (0,2), (0,6),(1,1/6)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well we have the answer then. We just solved for the point on the line when x=1 and got (1, 1/6) :) Do you understand the process though of how we got the answer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I do...I just plugged in all the answers to the first equation (3x+6y=2) and (1,1/6) was the only answer that worked...thats another way to solve it right?
