No, a plane can contain only one point of a line. Picture a piece of paper with a pencil stabbed through it. The paper is the plane, and the pencil is the line. The pencil/line only touches the paper/plane at one point. Hope this helped! If it did, please recommend me. -Brad

If you're only given one point, you can't draw the graph of the line, because there are an infinite number of different lines that all go through that one point. Or, to put it another way, if someone gives you a single point and asks you to draw the line through it, you can draw any old line you want through that point, and nobody can say it's wrong. In order to pin it down to one unique line, you need another piece of information in addition to the one point: either the slope of the line, or another point.

The line and the point define a plane.

Plane. A point has no dimension, a line has one dimension, and a plane has two dimensions.

It is a Geometry Theorem. "A line and a point not on the line lie in exactly one place" means what it says.

A line

Yes because a line can lie in many planes so one we add one point not on that line, we define a unique plane.

A line segment has one more point than a ray

Point, zero; line, one: length but no width

A tangent line.

Definition: a tangent is a line that intersects a circle at exactly one point, the point of intersection is the point of contact or the point of tangency. a tangent is a line that intersects a circle at exactly one point, the point of intersection is the (point of contact) or the **point of tangency**.
