    you need to find where the lines intersect.... ... so is the point (2, 0) or something else....

    I'm confused I thought it was when both lines touched and they both touch at 2,0

    think carefully... (2,0) means go right 2 units and up 0 units

    right, so going back to the original problem, what do you think the answer is?

    I think that the point (2,0) is not the solution because the lines do not intersect at (2,0) but at (0,2)
