Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if not how do you find it also for whose equation is 3x – 4y = 12. whose equation is y = 3.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thanks! I forgot that the formula for slope is that. :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for 3x4y=12 we need to write it in the form y=mx+c 3x4y=12 4y=123x y=3+3/4x So the gradient m=3/4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0other term for slope is gradient?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For y=3 use the formula of the slope again m=(y2y1)/(x2x1) =(3+3)/(21) =0/1 =0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we know that for y=3 at any x value y=3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Can we just consider that m=0 in "For y=3" that "m=0" because there is no x and that means that it is y=0x3 sorry for my bad grammar.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes that's another way to do it, :D

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how about this? parallel to the line whose equation is x = 2.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Because x=2 has a undetermined (m=some number/0) slope a parallel line would be x=3 or x=4 or x= any number

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we can write x=2 as y*0=x2 okay?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think I slightly got your explanation when I imagined a graph.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and rewriting it in the form y=mx+c we get y=x/02/0 but x/0 is undefined so we need to find an equation that has an undefined slope. y=ax/0+c/0 where a and c are constants

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so y=ax/0+c/0 y=(ax+c)/0 y*0=(ax+c) ax+c=0 ax=c x=c/a

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0does this make more sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i'll just analyze it wait for a while. :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0could you graph it?? and btw what is the answer again. I might get it if I know the answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1326969920159:dw The answer is x=c/a where c is any value and a can be any number but 0 So in the graph we have x=2, a line parallel to it is x=3 and so is x=1, x=9, x=11, ...., x=anynumber

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so my answer will be "m is any real number but not zero" ???

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is it x=m? In which case it can be any number even 0
