Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2well, pick two points for the lefthandside line notice the line dw:1443831986689:dw so use those two points

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2hmm you know... I wonder where that 7,5 comes from for according to the grid chart, that point isn't 7,5 :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2dw:1443832256882:dw then use those two points to get the slope then recall that \(\bf \begin{array}{lllll} &x_1&y_1&x_2&y_2\\ % (a,b) &({\color{red}{ 7}}\quad ,&{\color{blue}{ 5}})\quad % (c,d) &({\color{red}{ 7}}\quad ,&{\color{blue}{ 0}}) \end{array} \\\quad \\ % slope = m slope = {\color{green}{ m}}= \cfrac{rise}{run} \implies \cfrac{{\color{blue}{ y_2}}{\color{blue}{ y_1}}}{{\color{red}{ x_2}}{\color{red}{ x_1}}}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sounds, good when you have vertical lines, the slope is undefined.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0As you are dividing by 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You're looking for the slope so use what jdoe has provided you with, and since you are dividing by 0 you can write it's undefined.
