Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1there is no slope for that problem.. just the yintercept. so at point (0,3) draw a horizontal line.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4so no matter what form we use, whether via graph or via analysis of slopeintercept form or standard form, it appears that our slope is equal to zero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\(y=\infty x+b\) doesn't make sense. So I think it's best to say that vertical line has no slope.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4okay, chief whatever you say

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Zero 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Similarly, 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4slope 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, undefined slope is a better way to describe it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4indeterminate I guess :) at least we are beginning to agree

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Why did you draw \(m=\infty\)? lol...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4that is the closest I can draw to say indeterminate but I don't think it is required
