If a horizontal line has the equation f ( x ) = a and a vertical line has the equation x = a , what is the point of intersection? Explain why what you found is the point of intersection.

The point of intersection is ( a ,   a ) . This is because for the horizontal line, all of the y coordinates are a and for the vertical line, all of the x coordinates are a . The point of intersection is on both lines and therefore will have these two characteristics.
