    slope of any line is given by the difference in y co-ordinates between any 2 points divided by difference in the corresponding x co-ordinates

    for a vertical line, all the points have same x co-ordinate. so difference in x co-ordinates for a vertical line is 0

    which means denominator of the slope is 0

    when the denominator of any fraction is = 0, it is not defined

    yess slope of vertical lines is not defined. and slope of horizontal lines = 0
