# Plot the following points on a graph sheet. Verify if they lie on a line.

(a) A(4, 0), B(4, 2), C(4, 6), D(4, 2.5)

(b) P(1,1), Q(2, 2), R(3, 3), S(4, 4)

(c) K(2, 3), L(5, 3), M(5, 5), N(2, 5)

**Solution:**

Consider the x-axis and y-axis as a number line starting from (0,0). And locate the given points.

(a) We can plot the given points and join the consecutive points on a graph paper as follows.

From the graph, it can be observed that points A, B, C, and D lie on the same line.

(b) We can plot the given points and join the consecutive points on a graph paper as follows.

Hence, points P, Q, R, and S lie on the same line.

(c) We can plot the given points and join the consecutive points on a graph paper as follows.

Hence, points K, L, M, and N are not lying on the same line
