    What is the slope of a vertical line?

    Actually, a better question - how do I find the slope of something?

    as you move from the point (-1, -5) to the point (2, 10), the line has a rise of 15 and a run of 3, so the slope of the line is. notice that the number 5 also appears whenever the equation y = 5x whenever the equation of a line is written in form y = mx + b, its called the slope - intercept form of the equation

    That sounds awfully copy and pasted.. Anyway - since this is a vertical line, we can deduce that it is not a horizontal line (which has a slope of 0). That means we have three choices left.
