Since 8-8 is 0 would the slope be 0 or would there be no slope?

- Math, please check answer -
**Marth**, Sunday, December 20, 2009 at 11:21amThe slope is undefined (a vertical line). The equation of the line is x = 8; one cannot describe the line in the form "y=".

**Marth**, Sunday, December 20, 2009 at 11:22am*That would be the equation of a vertical line through those two points.

**Lyndse**, Sunday, December 20, 2009 at 11:35amThis would be slope equalls rise over run? would it be 1/16?

**drwls**, Sunday, December 20, 2009 at 11:53amMarth is correct. The slope is infinite or "undefined" for a vertical line, and the equation is x = 8.

"Rise over run" for those two points is 1/0, which is infinite.
