    If it results 0 over something the slope is 0. ex: rise/run .0 rise means it does not rise at all. Its a horizontal line

    0 is the slope.... there is no slope. Where does the line cross the y-axis? y = the y-intercept

    No it'd be y = 1 because the line crosses the y-axis at 1.|dw:1347913646315:dw|

    That was to help explain what i meant. The equation would be y = 1

    y = mx + b m = slope b = y -intercept (where the line crosses the y-axis) slope = 0 and 1 is the y-intercept: y = 0x + 1 0x = 0 y = 1 That help?

    Wait all you need is to find the slope of these two pairs. (5,1),(11,1), right? Then the slope is 0.

    Just remember: Horizontal line... Slope = 0 Vertical line... Slope = undefined
