# Lesson: Graphing Lines

## Comment on Graphing Lines

### "The line is made of

"The line is made of infinitely-many points" = mind blown!!!!!!
But then how can it be a line?

### It's a pretty esoteric

It's a pretty esoteric concept, but one definition (from Wikipedia) says "a line in the plane is often defined as the set of points whose coordinates satisfy a given linear equation."

### A line doesn't have

A line doesn't have infinitely many points if there's a clear-cut beginning and end to the line.

### I can see how you might

I can see how you might believe that.
Let's examine the line segment that goes from 0 to 1 on the number line.
The point 1/2 (aka 0.5) lies on the line segment (since 0 < 0.5 < 1)
The point 1/3 (aka 0.333...) lies on the line segment (since 0 < 0.333... < 1)
The point 1/4 (aka 0.25) lies on the line segment (since 0 < 0.25 < 1)
The point 1/5 (aka 0.2) lies on the line segment (since 0 < 0.2 < 1)
.
.
.
etc.

So, any point in the form 1/k (where k is a positive integer) will lie on the line segment from 0 to 1 on the number line. Since there are infinitely-many positive integers, we can conclude that there are infinitely many points on a line segment with a clear-cut beginning and end.

in your explination while testing option 3 i.e(0,2)
here x=0 and y=2 then by mistake you had used 2 in place of x instead of 0 , while calculating the equation

case : (0,2)=
2=3(0)^2+2/0-1
2=-2
anyways it doesnt satisfy
