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

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

Only one plane can contain three specific points.

Only one plane can pass through one line and a point that is not on the line?

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.

Where does a plane and a line intersect?

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

How many points are you a intersection of a line and a plane?

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.

If point belongs to the plane?
