    If it is parallel, it never intersects. x=8 is a vertical line, so you are looking for another vertical line. (It will be equal to x.)

    since it is only x= we know it is a verical line

    meaning that the answer has to be paralel to x=; in other words it has to be along the same axis (X)

    Select the equation of the line that passes through the point (3, 5) and is perpendicular to the line x = 4. y = 5 x = 5 y = 4 x = 3

    |dw:1437426907162:dw| so the line you are looking for has to go through point 3,5 and be perpendicular to x=4

    so to be perpendicular (and intersect) it needs to be on the y axis :)

    it is y=5 because the line needs to go through 3,5

    Select the coordinates of two points on the line y = −2. (2, −2) and (−2, 2) (−2, −2) and (−2, 0) (2, −2) and (0, −2) (−2, 2) and (−2, −2)

    (x,y) it cant be B, because b is saying that (-2,0) is a point
