Write the equation of the line with xintercept (–6, 0) and undefined slope.
would this be wrote as
0=k*6
I would write it as y= k(x6)
an undefined slope means that the line is vertical, there is no y term in your equation, since you are not "describing" the y value.
all you have to "describe" is the x value, so it would simply be x = 6
similarly a horizontal line would say y = b, where b is a constant.
Reiny,
Can you explain this in greater detail?
I so not understand.

write the equation of the line with xintercept (7, 0) na d undefined slope. a) y= 7 b) x= 7 c) y= 7x d) x= 0 The answer is b. This is because an undefined slope is m/0. So, its just a vertical line. Since x=7, that's the line.
