Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the slope of a line is y2 y1 / x2 x1 i will pick x1 = 0 and x2 = 2 The slope becomes 2  (2) / 20 = 0/2= 0 zero slope which is answer d.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Its zero Slpoe I promise!!!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok well im even more confused now

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its zero, I'm not too sure how I can explain this properly, but for horizontal lines, the slope is always zero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Dude just stop your only saying D so you can get the stupid medal but at this point idc about it I just want him to get the right answer!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3formula to find slope \[\huge\rm \frac{ y_2y_1}{ x_2x_1 }\] since the line is horizontal dw:1443791506934:dw horizontal line when y is constant and x values are changing

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3let's say we have (2,3)(4, 3)( notice y values are the same ) plugin \[\frac{ 33 }{ 42 }\] when you subtract same numbers what would you get in this question 33 =?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3remember the formula is = change in y's over change in x's

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so im going with zero slope thank you everyone i'll tell you who's right a bit later and medal them

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah a bit that helps with the rest of the questions i might have thank you

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3alright just practice remember when we subtract same numbers we will get zero so zero divided by anything would be just 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3let's say if we have vertical line dw:1443791845577:dw in this questions x value would stay the same

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3so when substitute points into the formula (3,2)(3,4) (x values would be the same ) \[\frac{ 42 }{ 33 }= ???\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3i'm pretty sure ur next question would be on vertical line slope

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3alright so \(\color{blue}{\text{Originally Posted by}}\) @Nnesha so when substitute points into the formula (3,2)(3,4) (x values would be the same ) \[\frac{ 42 }{ 33 }= ???\] \(\color{blue}{\text{End of Quote}}\) solve this

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3i just picked two points but for vertical line x coordinate would be the same 4sure

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3right so answer would be what 2/0 = ?

Nnesha

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3no no you can't divide by zero whenever u get `0 at the denominator ` answer would be undefined bec you can't divide by 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh undefined ok bc thats what i originally thought

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i knew there was some rule between the horizontal or vertical slope i just forgot which

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@dakid88 we're on a different question so actually, you're wrong

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its all right i understand it now
