I'm suppose to write an equation with the following information:

Line passes through (2,-6) and is parallel to x=8

I know i must use the slope point form the problem is that since x=8 I don not know which is the slope.

Please help me :)

The line for x=8 is a straight line parallel to the y axis passing through x=8.

thanks but what is the slope?

thanks but what is the slope?

What IS the slope for a vertical line parallel to the y axis? The slope is indeterminate.

so you draw a another line parallel to the y axis passing through x=2 (Of course is will pass through y = -6 or +6 as well as many other y values.

Thank You so much DrBob222, have a good day!
