Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So, if the line is going straight, and not having any bend, it will be 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0actually if you have x=constant, then the slope is undefined if you have y=constant, then the slope is 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The slope can be either indeterminate or undefined, it depends xD

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0slope is rise/run so if a graph has only rise and no run then the slope is undefined because the bottom of that fraction would be 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If the line is vertical (which means you will have x=constant), then the slope will be undefined if the line is horizontal (which means you will have y=constant), then the slope will be zero.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So....its undefined.
