## meilendurcer 2 years ago Without graphing, tell whether the line containing (6, –3) and (0, –8) is horizontal, vertical, or neither. A. Neither B. Vertical C. Horizontal

1. hartnn

for vertical lines, the x-coordinates of all points are same for horizontal lines, the y-coordinates of all points are same so, here its..... ?

2. hartnn

do u see any co-ordinates same for both points here ?

3. meilendurcer

no?

4. meilendurcer

i think it's B though

5. hartnn

it can't be vertical, all points in vertical line have same x co-ordinates. here its different

6. N00bstyle

What do you conclude when you draw yourself a picture of these coordinates?

7. meilendurcer

C i doubt it's neither

8. N00bstyle

You can use the draw function if you like ;)

9. hartnn

whats the doubts in it being neither ?

10. N00bstyle

Then tell us what you see

11. N00bstyle

I know it's not allowed, but it still helps you thinking about: The coordinates have DIFFERENT x and y coordinates, so you can conclude that the lines are (...)

*line is

13. meilendurcer

|dw:1356819468906:dw|

14. N00bstyle

|dw:1356819581407:dw| Same y, so this means it's a horizontal line

15. hartnn

0,-8 is not there.

16. help321

what math is this

17. N00bstyle

How did you come up to draw the point (0;-8) over there?
