Algebra I: Determine whether a point lies on a line
This is a free lesson from our course in Algebra I
 
   
This lesson explains how to determine whether a point lies on a line with a given equation. It also explains what is the required condition for a point to lie on a given line. Generally speaking, the condition for a point (a, b) to lie on the line y = mx + c is: 
               b = ma + c.
To determine whether a point lie on the line you have to jst check whether the coordinates of the point given satisfy the equation or not. For this what you have to do is : Put the value of the x any y coordinates of the point and check whether it satisfy the equation y = mx + c or not.
