\[\Delta Y \div \Delta X\] Or "change in Y over change in X" or "rise over run" So: \[(0  0) \div (46)\]\[=0 \div 10\]\[=0\]

However, the answer is zero, right?

Yes, the slope is 0. Meaning the line will run parallel to the xaxis, offset by whatever constant is added. Generally the equation used is:\[y = mx + c\] or something equivalent. So the line would run parallel to the xaxis at the y value of whatever 'c' is equal to.
