    Are you familiar with the formula y = mx + b?

    -3 = mx + b, right.

    So is there an x on the left?

    Actually, let's try this instead. An equation is usually y = mx + b. This equation is y = -3. Is there an x in that?

    Heh. Right. So, there's no slope. What does the line y = -3 look like?
