find the slope of the line through the given points (8,-2) and (8,-1)

when i do the math I come up with 1/0 as the slope making that infinite.

Our choices for the answer are:
a)0
B) 1/16
c) 3/16
d) no slope
would the answer be d since the slope is infinite?

  • math -

    d. No slope. 1/0 = undefined.

    The 2 points represent a ver. line.
