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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the 1st two issues, it seems to me they're just any points you'd really like, so long they include that "x" or "y"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Give 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Oh yeah , So (5,1)(5,2) is the answer for that one ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Or (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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2>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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Remember, (x, y) If a line is passing through x, then it is vertical. dw:1374264795542:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So, if you want to write the equation of a horizontal line, given the points: (1, 8)., what is the only logical answer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I have no clue ..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Well, 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 yterm because that's the only horizontal possibility.
