Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the slope is undefined. One of the previous answerers erred in that he forgot to use 2 points instead of only one. So, let's take the points (1, 7) and (2, 7). m = (2  1) / (7  7) m = 1 / 0 Since you cannnot divide by 0, m = undefined. This is always true of vertical lines. The equation of a vertical line will always look like the one you provided, for example: x = 1 x = 2 x = 5 x = 43575986 x = 0
