    I probably should know how to do this but don't remember

    Okay...if you graph this line...you will get a straight line right?

    So, if the line is going straight, and not having any bend, it will be 0

    actually if you have x=constant, then the slope is undefined if you have y=constant, then the slope is 0

    The slope can be either indeterminate or undefined, it depends xD

    slope 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

    I know it is rise/run sister.

    If 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.

    It is just an easier and quicker way to think about it.

    isnt the line vertical so it would be undefined?

    yeah..but is it an answer choice? @CrazyTurtle483

    Doesn't matter if it is an answer choice or not, it is the answer

    So....its undefined.

    No guessing involved just using the definition of slope

    I didn't see the undefined part. Sorry XD
