    This is because a horizontal or vertical is just a straight line, so any point on the line of x=3 would be an answer. So on a question like this, just look at the x and y.

    Are you asking: \("\)what if instead of the point (3,2) I had a point \((\)-\(\pi\), \(^\pi/_4\) \()\), then what would my vertial and horizontal lines (that go through this point) be\("\)?

    Ok, I will tell you that for any point (\(w\), \(k\)) there is only one vertical and one horizontal line that go through that point: x=\(w\) is your vertical line y=\(k\) is your horizontal line let me draw a(n example of a) picture that corresponds to what I said.,..
