# Existence of a linear function from $\mathbb{R}^2\rightarrow \mathbb{R}$

Let $D_n$ be the open disc of radius $n$ with centre at the point $(n,0)\in\mathbb{R}^2$. Does there exist a function $f:\mathbb{R}^2\to\mathbb{R}$ of the form $f(x,y)=ax+by$ such that $$\cup_{n=1}^\infty D_n=\{(x,y)\mid f(x,y)>0\}\;?$$ If your answer is 'Yes', give the values of $a$ and $b$.

The given set is open set, I think a function $f(x,y)=x$ or $y$ can do the job, but I am not sure, I also want to know whether inside the question any deep result is hidden from analysis.

Hint: Note that $\cup_{n=1}^\infty D_n=\{(x,y)\in\mathbb{R}^2\mid x>0\}$.
