    well, pick two points for the left-hand-side line notice the line |dw:1443831986689:dw| so use those two points

    hmm you know... I wonder where that 7,5 comes from for according to the grid chart, that point isn't 7,5 :/

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

    Sounds, good when you have vertical lines, the slope is undefined.

    As you are dividing by 0

    what would the equation look like?

    You'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.
