4) A circle and a straight line are drawn on the same coordinate graph, then how amny places the two graph intersect?

i) the equation of the circle if is x2+y2=25,
(where x2 is x square and y2 is y square)

ii) the y intercept of the straight line is 6.

E it is

from first statement you know points (3,4) & (4,3) lies on the circle. But we don't know where the line lies

from the second statement you know Y intercept is 6, but we don't know what the slope is. Hence can't answer the question

My guess is E

Only the y interecept is given. We caanot find the slope of the line from the informaton provided. So the answer is E
