    a line perpendicular to the x-axis has an undefined slope, i.e. it is vertical

    plot the point on a graph and you will better see how to get the answer

    This would be one I have to use the graph for then. I was thinking there was a formula for this one too.

    well, I guess there is a formula for anything, but math is much easier if you understand what is being asked rather than try and find the correct formula. But your book/notes at some point probably tells you the form of vertical and horizontal line equations your very welcome

    I have been through a lot of hard times in my life and I continue to struggle. I believe that I am still here because God Kept Me. So I use this as my alias. It is symbolic to me. I am sorry for the delayed response but I was prepping to take an exam at school.
