Write an equation of a line through the point (-5, -2) that is perpendicular to the x-axis. State the slope of the line.

The equation for a vertical line consists of "x = ", and then on the other side of the equal sign, is the x-coordinate that it passes through.

The equation of the vertical line passing through (-5,-2) would be x = -5.

The slope of a vertical line is undefined.

slope is

The equation of the vertical line passing through (-5,-2) would be x = -5.

The slope of a vertical line is undefined.
