    vertical line = 0 slope (remember slope = rise /over) horizontal line = undefined

    x=vertical line = undefined slope y=horizontal line = 0 slope bec x values would be the same and if you use the formula \[\huge\rm \frac{ y_2-y_1 }{ x_2 -x_1 }\] we would get 0 at the denominator (bec the line have same x-coordinate ) and when you subtract same two numbers you will get and if we get 0 at the denominator then answer would be undefined

    |dw:1442433610575:dw| same x value for ally-coordinates

    so \[\huge\rm \frac{ y_2 - y_1 }{ x_2-x_1 }= \frac{ y_2 -y_1}{ -5-(-5)}\]
