Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The line x=4 has a slope of infinity so line parallel to it'll also have slope of infinity Standard equation of a line with slope m and passing throgh (x1,y1) (yy1)/(xx1)=m yy1=m(xx1) here m= infinity or let m= 1/p where p=0 so (x1,y1)=(5, 2) \[y+2=\frac{1}{p}(x5)\] multiplying p to both sides we get \[p(y+2)=x5\] p=0 so \[0=x5\] so the line is \[x=5\]
