## Babyjaguar<3 2 years ago Give the coordinates of two points on the line x = 5. Give the coordinates of two points on the line y = -2. Write the equation of the horizontal line passing through the point (-1, -8). Write the equation of the vertical line passing through the point (3, 1). Is the line with equation x = 4 horizontal or vertical? What is the slope of this line? Is the line with equation y = -8 horizontal or vertical? What is the slope of this line?

the 1st two issues, it seems to me they're just any points you'd really like, so long they include that "x" or "y"

3. Compassionate

What are you exactly having trouble with?

4. Babyjaguar<3

Like how to coordinate

5. Compassionate

Give the coordinates of two points on the line x = 5. So any point where x = 5 is acceptable. (5, 1)(5, 2) Those are both acceptable. Same thing for the coordinate of y. Those are the answers to the first two problems. Does that make sense?

6. Babyjaguar<3

Oh yeah , So (5,1)(5,2) is the answer for that one ?

7. Compassionate

Or (5. 10000)(5, 19394234234234) Anything where x = 5. Because we know (x, y) So if we wanted to do the second one, where y = -2, we can have: (23423423, -2)(2234234888, -2) Or any other number. As long as y = -2

8. Babyjaguar<3

so that number HAS to be in there

9. Compassionate

Yes.

10. Babyjaguar<3

May you help me on the rest ??

>Write the equation of the horizontal line passing through the point (-1, -8). We know that a horizontal line goes sideways. Can you try to solve this one? Any information you may think be useful? Try to solve it yourself.

12. Compassionate

Remember, (x, y) If a line is passing through x, then it is vertical. |dw:1374264795542:dw|

13. Compassionate

If a line is passing through y, then it is horizontal|dw:1374264852102:dw|

14. Compassionate

So, if you want to write the equation of a horizontal line, given the points: (-1, -8)., what is the only logical answer?

15. Babyjaguar<3

I have no clue .-.

16. Compassionate

Well, we know that x = vertical and y = horizontal. Therefore, if we have (-1, -8), we know that it's always put in the form (x, y). So, the horizontal line would just be y = -8. Just take the y-term because that's the only horizontal possibility.

>Write the equation of the vertical line passing through the point (3, 1). Can you do this one on your own?

18. Babyjaguar<3

ya thanks (:

19. Compassionate

Alright. If you need anymore help just message me.

Sure will (:
