    Answer:

    Write the problem as a mathematical expression. (5,5), (5,−8)

    Use y=mx+b to calculate the equation of the line, where m represents the slope and b represents the y-intercept. To calculate the equation of the line, use the y=mx+b format.

    Slope is equal to the change in y over the change in x , or rise over run.

    m=(change in y)/(change in x)

    The change in x is equal to the difference in x-coordinates (also called run), and the change in y

    is equal to the difference in y-coordinates (also called rise).

    m=(y2−y1) / (x2−x1)

    Substitute in the values of x and y

    into the equation to find the slope.

    m=(−8−(5)) / (5−(5))

    Finding the slope m.

    Undefined

    x=5

    Answer:

    m = undefined

    Algebra I

    • Coordinates (x, y)
    • Slope Formula: \displaystyle m=\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Step 1: Define

    Point (5, 5)

    Point (5, -8)

    Step 2: Identify

    (5, 5) → x₁ = 5, y₁ = 5

    (5, -8) → x₂ = 5, y₂ = -8

    Step 3: Find slope m

    Simply plug in the 2 coordinates into the slope formula to find slope m

    1. Substitute in points [Slope Formula]:                                                             \displaystyle m=\frac{-8-5}{5-5}
    2. [Slope] Subtract:                                                                                               \displaystyle m=\frac{-13}{0}

    Here we see that we have a number divided by 0. Since we know that we cannot divide any number by 0, our slope will be undefined. This will be a vertical line on a Cartesian plane of x = 5.
