Solution:

We know that infinite number of lines passes through a point.

Equation of 2 lines passing through (2,14) should be in such a way that it satisfies the point.

Let the equation be, 7x = y

7x–y = 0

When x = 2 and y = 14

(7×2)-14 = 0

14–14 = 0

0 = 0

L.H.S = R.H.S

Let another equation be, 4x = y-6

4x-y+6 = 0

When x = 2 and y = 14

(4×2–14+6 = 0

8–14+6 = 0

0 = 0

L.H.S = R.H.S

Since both the equations satisfies the point (2,14), than say that the equations of two lines passing through (2, 14) are 7x = y and 4x = y-6

We know that, infinite number of line passes through one specific point. Since there is only one point (2,14) here, there can be infinite lines that passes through the point.
