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

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?

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
