ALG 2!!!

posted by .

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.

  • ALG 2!!! -

    (y - 4) = m (x + 2)

    m is the undefined slope.

  • ALG 2!!! -

    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 x-intercept (-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.
