A horizontal line will start off "y = " and then be the ycoordinate on the other side of the equal sign

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw: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 xcoordinate 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.
