Yes, it can. A plane can contain any number of points of a line.

What is used to locate a point in a coordinate plane

The set of all points in the plane equidistant from one point in the plane is named a parabola.

point * * * * * or, nothing (if the line is parallel to the plane).

A point is a single spot in space. A line is the connection between two points. A plane is the space made up between three or more lines. A plane has infinite lines and therefore infinite points.

yah

If you mean point (2, 5) then it is in the 1st quadrant on the Cartesian plane

Only one plane can contain three specific points.

I'd feel a lot more comfortable if you said "... can contain one line and a point ...".When you say "pass through one line", I picture a sword passing through a tight pieceof string. If that's how your plane passes through the line, then the statement in your"question" is false. If your plane contains the line and the extra point, then the statementis true ... only one plane can do that.

Yes.

A saddle point is a point in the range of a smooth function every neighbourhood of which contains points on each side of its tangent plane.

There is only one such plane.

In most cases, in a single point. It is also possible that there is no intersection, or that the intersection is the entire line.

There are two possible answers; if the line is crossing the plane at an angle, then the line and the plane only intersect at one point. However, if the line is part of the plane, then the entire line intersects with the plane, and there are an infinite number of intersecting points.

Then it is in the plane!
