Slope (m)= (y2-y1)/(x2-x1)

= (3-3)/(4+1)

m = 0

Using the point slope formula,

y-y1 = m (x-x1)

y-3 = 0 (x-4)

y-3= 0

Therefore, y =3 is the equation which is parallel to the x-axis!!

Hope that helps :)

for the numberator portion of your answer, subtract the 1st y value from the 2nd y value (remember your ORDER as the same order will apply to the x values later).

next, do the same for your x values.

this is what it looks like:

3- 03 0

----- + --- = "0"

4- (-1) 5

your slope is zero which means you have a horizontal line
