Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the equation for slope is \[m = \frac{ rise }{ run } = \frac{ y _{2}y _{1} }{ x _{2}x _{1} }\] and for a line y = 7 no matter what x you take the y value remains the same so you will always get \[\frac{ 77 }{ x _{2}x _{1} } =\frac{ 0 }{ x _{2}x _{1} } \] and zero divided by any number is still zero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The slope of the line is undefined...there is only one x value for an infinite amount of y values,

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Eleven17 No an undefined slope is the equation x = 7 because you divide by zero when calculating the slope and any number divided by zero is undefined (infinite) when zero is divided by a number the answer is still zero not undefined thus the slope can still be calculated
