To find a point on the second line that is parallel to the first line passing through (2, 2) and (1, 2), we need to calculate the slope of the first line.

The slope (m) of the first line passing through (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) is given by:

[m = \frac{{y2 - y1}}{{x2 - x1}}]

Substituting the coordinates of the points (2, 2) and (1, 2):

[m = \frac{{2 - 2}}{{1 - 2}} = \frac{0}{-1} = 0]

Since the first line has a slope of 0, the second line parallel to it should also have a slope of 0.

Now, considering the second line passing through (7, 4) and having a slope of 0, it means the line is horizontal. So, any point on the second line would have the same y-coordinate as (7, 4), which is 4.

Therefore, one other point that the second line may pass through is (any x-coordinate, 4).

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
