Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry, I'm a little dimwitted, but isn't "0=10" a bit, illogical? I'm being a bit confrontational because it doesn't look like my example in the txtbook, even though I don't understand it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if you had the equation y=2x + 3 does the point (3,9) lie on the line yes it does .. check sub it in 9=(2)(3)+3 9=9 true now when you make 3 planes x,y,z your just check does the point lie on the plane they use word points and vector interchangeably
