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.
