Find the slope and y-intercept of the line, x = 5.

When a linear equation starts off "x = " and then it is a constant term (with no variable) on the other side of the equal sign, this indicates a vertical line.

rise

----- = slope For a vertical line, it is all rise and no run. Such as 5/0 or 3/0 or 128/0.

run

When you divide by zero, it is considered undefined.

Therefore, the slope of x = 5 is undefined.

Below, is the graph of x = 5.

**Vertical lines have slopes which are undefined.**rise

run

When you divide by zero, it is considered undefined.

Therefore, the slope of x = 5 is undefined.

**Also, since it is a vertical line, passing through 5 on the x-axis,**

there is no y-intercept.there is no y-intercept.

**slope = undefined**
