Is it possible for the x-intercept and the y-intercept of a straight line to be at the same point? Why or why not?

Why do you have to make degrading comments all the time? Either help or don't.

This is the question...is it possible and why?

And yes this is College Algebra...some of us are better at things other than math. I'm doing great after being graduated for 17 years, a 9 year old, a husband and a full time job. I'm loving my A average thank you.

Agreed, Kelly. Good for you. I think what Reiny was getting at is at the origin the point is (0,0) so it is possible. Not 100% positive though.
