probably this is more a question of coordinate geometry:
I will take three equations in this way:
50= 7*7+1....................[1]
5= 3*1+2......................[2]
10= 7*1+3....................[3]; nowI plot each one of them on a graph
paper-----here one cannot be sure about which one is the value of tanx
=> rise over run---is it true?
More over for [1] there is a line which cuts Y-axis at 2, now;---- should [2] &[3] cut[1] at points 5 & 10 respectively as 5*10=50?
Basically what I mean is that out of each set of converging lines at Y -axis
[for every "2" values of tan] should there be one that is true?

There is nothing to plot. An equation needs at least one variable.
y=2 can be plotted
y=5x can be plotted
2=2 cannot be ploted.
That keeps any response to the rest of the question from being possible.
Except yes, tan = rise/run
