Are you asking about, or how to apply, the phase rule?

Actually I wanted to understand why degree of freedom is 1 in the wet region ??
I know by the Gibbs formula it comes 1 but to locate certain point inside the dome we need to know two properties ( eg- pressure and dryness fraction) ?
How can we define the state by just one intensive property?
