Write an equation of a line with an undefined slope and passing through the point (2,4).
Hint: To answer this question, consider the type of line that has an undefined slope. Then write an equation of that line using the values in the ordered pair.

(y  4) = m (x + 2)
m is the undefined slope. 
on the other hand, maybe the slope is in fact undefined, meaning the line is vertical.
In that case, the line is
x = 2 
Steve has interpreted the problem differently, as if the line had infinite slope. I wrote an equation for all lines through the point, with an arbitrary slope m.
The problem statement is ambiguous in my opinion.

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.
