Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1To see if a point lies on a given line, you plug the coordinates of that point into the equation. Then you determine if the equation is true after simplifying. If the claim is "The point (2,17) lies on the line y=3x13", then we test that claim like this y=3x13 17=3*213 ... replace x with 2 and y with 17 17 = 6  13 17 = 7 ... this equation is false Since 17 = 7 is false, this means (2,17) does NOT lie on the line y = 3x13
