Write the equation of the line with xintercept (–8, 0) and undefined slope. would this by y=8x??????????
You're close!
The only line with an undefined slope is a vertical line.
Therefore the equation of a vertical line passing through (8, 0) is:
x = 8
There is no y in the equation; y can be any value.
