    i think u know whats a slope...its tangent of the angle made by the line with the positive x-axis...

    in the equation of a line of the from y=mx+c x and y are the coordinates of any point on the line...m is the slope...and c is the y-intercept(i.e. the point where the line cuts the y-axis)..clear?

    so we need 2 things to determine a line m and c..

    theres no Y intercept in an undefined

    well we are given only one information ..the coordinate of a point..so we have undetermined constants..

    it will be x = -6, which is a straight vertical line that passes through that point. vertical lines have undefined slope since slope = rise / run (run is 0).

    k. if by undefined u mean a slope of tan90 then the line is perpendicular to x-axis..
