find the equation of a line that is parallel to the line x= -1 and contains the point (-7,5)

the equation of the parallel line is ?
*type an equation*

  • math -

    x=-1 is a vertical line
    so the line through (-7,5) is a vertical line

    easy to find, just set x equal to the x of the point
    so

    x = -7
