Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If 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.)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok so if a line is parallel. They will never inersect or touch

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1since it is only x= we know it is a verical line

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1meaning that the answer has to be paralel to x=; in other words it has to be along the same axis (X)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok it basically means they interest' for examply the xy plain is made up of two perindicular lines

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh like They intersect though?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1437426907162:dw so the line you are looking for has to go through point 3,5 and be perpendicular to x=4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so to be perpendicular (and intersect) it needs to be on the y axis :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it is y=5 because the line needs to go through 3,5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Select 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)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sketchy but I think it's maybe B.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok so we know it is on the y axis

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(x,y) it cant be B, because b is saying that (2,0) is a point
