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.
