can you graph it?

  • MckennaRian
I'm not sure how you do that.

  • nincompoop
where would you put the value of y?

On the y axis?

there is no slope for that problem.. just the y-intercept. so at point (0,3) draw a horizontal line.

so no matter what form we use, whether via graph or via analysis of slope-intercept form or standard form, it appears that our slope is equal to zero

\(y=\infty x+b\) doesn't make sense. So I think it's best to say that vertical line has no slope.
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
okay, chief whatever you say
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
Zero slope means the slope exists and has the value zero. No slope means that there is no slope since slope is undefined in this case because of division by zero.
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
Similarly, if a quadratic equation has no real roots, we say it has no roots. In no way does that mean that the root has a value of zero.

  • nincompoop
slope cannot be determined for it is undefined is different from no slope at all. if there is no slope then there exists no line to evaluate.
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
Yes, undefined slope is a better way to describe it.
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
indeterminate I guess :) at least we are beginning to agree
geerky42
  • geerky42
Why did you draw \(m=\infty\)? lol...
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
that is the closest I can draw to say indeterminate but I don't think it is required
