    the slope would be positive then because the x is a positive not negative the x has a 1 in front of it but it is a positive

    \[24=x+5\\ 19=x\]

    i don't believe you actually a line may look like say \(y=mx+b \) or \(ax+by=c\)

    \[24=x+5\] is a "conditional equation" which is true if \(x=19\)

    well then if x=19 then is is a slope of 0

    if it is the line \(x=19\) then there is NO slope, the slope is undefined

    it would be a graph with the line going virticaly on x=19

    which is not the same as a slope of 0
