The graph of an equation in the form y=mx + b is a
straight line. Can the equation of every straight line be
written in the form y=mx + b (Hint: What is the
equation of a vertical line?)

  • math -

    What IS the equation of a vertical line? That is the key to your answer.

  • math -

    so the equation for vertical line is x=a. So it would be false?
