    In a horizontal line, y remains constant. In a vertical line, x remains constant. Thus: x= 2 and y= -11

    barrycarter explained it very well. A vertical line has the formula x=a is a constant. In this case since the point Z is on this line the vertical line would be x=2 and y can have any value you want. The horizontal line has the formula y=a where a is a constant. In this case it is given y=-11. So the formula is y=-11

    You are solving it by understanding the formula of the vertical and horizontal line, and using the values in the Point Z
