    "The equation of the vertical line passing through the point (3,1)" x = 3 is the equation of the vertical line through the point (3,1) A vertical line will start off "x = " and then be the x-coordinateon the other side of the equal sign. A horizontal line will start off "y = " and then be the y-coordinate on the other side of the equal sign

    |dw:1374505835091:dw| Notice the coordinates of other points on the vertical line that passes through point (3, 1). What do all points have in common? All the points have an x-coordinate of 3. That means, no matter what y is, x is always 3. It's as if y makes no difference in the equation of the line. In fact, y makes so little difference, it is not needed. The equation is: x = 3.
