Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmmmm, i wanna say they fall on the x axis but i feel like im wrong

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0notice how all of the points plotted, and any other point we didn't get to, all have the same thing in common: they have an x coordinate of 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes. this vertical line is the equation x = 3 EVERY point on this line has an x coordinate of 3. The y coordinate doesn't matter
