line one 8x-11y=-26
line two 4x-13y=2
(x,y)
(7,2) are they on line 1, line 2, both or neither?
(4,-9) on line 1, line 2, both or neither?
(5,6) line 1, line 2 or neither?
The simplest way to check whether the poits falll on a line or not is to put the given point (i mean values of x and y cordinates (x,y)) in the given equation;if both the left hand side( imean the equation part to the left of= sign) is equal to righrt hand side, poits lie on the line
eg
line one 8x-11y=-26
(5,6) line 1, line 2 or neither?
put 8 (5)-11(6)=-26
40-66=-26
-26 =-26 yeah true true......so point (5,6) lies on line 1
try the rest urself
