 Question 70593: Just a quick question, why is it true that when you find 2 point satisfying a linear equation that you will have same graph for the line represented by the equation??Found 2 solutions by checkley75, stanbon:Answer by checkley75(3666)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Y=mX+B IS THE STANDARD EQUATION FOR A LINE THROUGH TWO POINTS WITH A SLOPE(m) & A Y INTERCEPT (b). THIS LINE IS EXPRESED AS AN EQUATION & A GRAPH OF THE LINE THROUGH THE TWO DEFINED POINTS. Answer by stanbon(60771)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Every two pair of points has the same slope and the equation only has one y-intercept. The slope gives you "m"; the y-intercept gives you "b". The equation of the line is y=mx+b and m and b do not change no matter what two points on the line are used. Cheers, Stan H.
