    What actually is an invariant line? The points on the line move but the image of the line remains unchanged? How does that work?

    An invariant line is one for which, under a given transformation, all points on the line are their own image. I'm not sure what you mean by them moving?

    Fair. My description would be "a line of invariant points", right? I get confused. Don't even do this FP4 stuff.

    yes

    invariant line is one where points move but only on the line
    line of invariant points, points do not move on that line

    If a point is its own image, for all points, then you have the identity transformation. But an invariant line is one where a point on a line maps to a possibly different point on the line, as with a shear.

    line of invariant points, points do not move on that line

    Thanks! Apologies for the confusion OP, I'll let TeeEm take over.
