0 or undefinded I don't understand

3. anonymous

no slope

4. Mertsj

It's a vertical line. It has no slope because it has no run. So when you try to calculate the rise/run, the denominator is 0 which makes the slope undefined.

5. anonymous

undefined

6. anonymous

The slope is undefined.

7. anonymous

yes

Thanks for explaining I was lost...

The slope of a line is defined as: $m=\frac{\Delta y}{\Delta x}=\frac{y-y _{0}}{x-x_{0}}$A vertical line has no slope because the change in x is 0, and so you would get: $m=\frac{some number}{0}$Which is undefined.
