    I'm not sure where to begin with this. Will I be using the y=mx+b formula?

    If so, how do I find the slope?

    Would it be the same points repeating?

    A line parallel to the y-axis is a vertical line. Vertical lines have the characteristic that the x-coordinates of all of the points that comprise the line are equal.

    in case of a line parallel to y axis the equation of the line becomes-x=-0.399
