If ,, , then the graph of the function contains the point (,),(,), and (,).
Use the two point form of an equation of a straight line and the points (,),(,):
where (x1,y1)and (x2,y2) are the coordinates of the given points.

here is a proof that all three of given points lie on this line

 Solved by pluggable solver: To determine if 3 points lie in a line The 3 points lie on a same plane. For all points to lie on a line they should satisfy the equation of a line. Hence any two points taken on a line should calculate to the same slope of a line. In order to prove the 3 points to lie on a line, as there exists a unique line containing three points and every line has a unique slope. Hence it will be sufficient to prove that the slope calculated taking 2 points at a time should be equal. Slope of line taking points (X1,Y1) and (X2,Y2) is ........................(1) Slope of line taking points (X3,Y3) and (X1,Y1) is ........................(2) From conditions (1) and (2) The slopes are equal hence the 3 points can lie on same line. If the slope calculated from points (X2,Y2) and (X3,Y3) comes out to be same then it is confirmed that the 3 points lie on a same line. ........................(3) From (1),(2) and (3) Hence, It is proved that the 3 points lie on same line.

solving linear system by substitution:
 Solved by pluggable solver: Solving a linear system of equations by subsitution Lets start with the given system of linear equations Now in order to solve this system by using substitution, we need to solve (or isolate) one variable. I'm going to choose y. Solve for y for the first equation Subtract from both sides Divide both sides by 5. Which breaks down and reduces to Now we've fully isolated y Since y equals we can substitute the expression into y of the 2nd equation. This will eliminate y so we can solve for x. Replace y with . Since this eliminates y, we can now solve for x. Distribute 3 to Multiply Reduce any fractions Subtract from both sides Make 9 into a fraction with a denominator of 5 Combine the terms on the right side Make 4 into a fraction with a denominator of 5 Now combine the terms on the left side. Multiply both sides by . This will cancel out and isolate x So when we multiply and (and simplify) we get <---------------------------------One answer Now that we know that , lets substitute that in for x to solve for y Plug in into the 2nd equation Multiply Subtract from both sides Combine the terms on the right side Multiply both sides by . This will cancel out 3 on the left side. Multiply the terms on the right side Reduce So this is the other answer <---------------------------------Other answer So our solution is and which can also look like (,) Notice if we graph the equations (if you need help with graphing, check out this solver) we get graph of (red) and (green) (hint: you may have to solve for y to graph these) intersecting at the blue circle. and we can see that the two equations intersect at (,). This verifies our answer. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Check: Plug in (,) into the system of equations Let and . Now plug those values into the equation Plug in and Multiply Add Reduce. Since this equation is true the solution works. So the solution (,) satisfies Let and . Now plug those values into the equation Plug in and Multiply Add Reduce. Since this equation is true the solution works. So the solution (,) satisfies Since the solution (,) satisfies the system of equations this verifies our answer.
