Through (-1,-6) perpendicular to the y-axis Plot the point and draw the line perpendicular to the y-axis. It passes thru all the points where y = -6. Equation: y = -6 ============================== 3) Find an equation of the line with the given slope that passes through a given point. write the equation Ax+By=C .... m= -1, (-5,-9) Use the form y = mx+b -9 = -1*-5 + b b = -14 ---- Equation: y = -x-14 ---- Change the form: x + y = -14 =========================== Cheers, Stan H. Answer by solver91311(18785)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! I already answered this one. A line parallel to the -axis is a vertical line. Vertical lines have a couple of interesting characteristics. In the first place, ALL of the -coordinates of the set of ordered pairs that comprise the line have to be identical. Since all of the -coordinates are equal, no matter which two points you choose for the purposes of computing the slope, the slope fraction will have a zero denominator. Hence, the slope of any vertical line is undefined. You can't write the equation of a vertical line in slope-intercept form because the slope quantity is undefined. However, since the -coordinates of all the points on the line are identical, the equation of a vertical line passing through the point is uniquely defined by the equation John My calculator said it, I believe it, that settles it
