I don't understand this at alllll considering my answer options. Help?
Write the equation of a line with an undefined slope and point (1, 7).
My answer options:

that explains the x and y. x is horizontal. y is vertical.

ok... so slopes go between m = 0 ( a horizontal line) dw:1350018405797:dw an undifined slope has a value of zero in the denominator...

kinda... Equations such as x = 2, x = 3, x =4, etc are all vertical lines (with undefined slopes) Equations such as y = 1, y = 5, y = 17, etc are all horizontal lines (with slopes of zero)

So because it has an undefined slope, its in the form x = k where k is any number
