 Equations of Lines Parallel to the x-axis and y-axis

We would observe that all the points with y-co-ordinate 0 lie on the x-axis and that with x-co-ordinate 0 lie on the y-axis. 

Now we can guess the equation of the line parallel to the x-axis as y = k and y-axis as x = k. Let us draw the graph of the equation x – 2 = 0. According to linear equation in one variable this equation has one solution x = 2. 

Considering it as an equation in two variables, it can be expressed as x + y.0 = 2. This equation has infinitely many solutions as y can take any real number.

 


Let us draw the graph of the equation y – 3 = 0. According to linear equation in one variable this equation has one solution y =3. 

Considering it as an equation in two variables, it can be expressed as 0.
x + y = 3. This equation has infinitely many solutions as x can take any real number.
