Actually yes they can!

y=∞x+c LOL

]]>Just me being picky.

]]>(we have the same origin, don't we?

this equation is used to find the equation of a given straight line when two points on the cartesian plane are given, namely x1 and y1. ]]>

k = the gradient

m = the y-intercept

^^

]]>I've never heard of any of the equations in this thread. In my studies I have always used

where ζ is Riemann's zeta function, Γ(x) is the gamma function, ∇ is the del operator, L[sup]-1[/sup] denotes the inverse Laplace transform, T[sub]n[/sub] is the nth Chebyshev polynomial of the first kind, C is a simple closed curve bounding a region having z = a as an interior point, σ[sub]0[/sub][sup]m[/sup] is a simplex of an oriented simplicial complex and [σ[sup]m[/sup], σ[sup]m - 1[/sup]] is an incidence number, S is a compact, orientable, differentiable k-dimensional manifold with boundary in E[sup]n[/sup] and ω is a (k - 1)-form in E[sup]n[/sup], defined, and C[sup]1[/sup] at all points of S, and η(x) is Dirichlet's eta function.

(Sorry for stealing your joke, Ricky. )

...is that actually a straight line equation or is it a whole bunch of mathematical mumbo-jumbo?
