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.

Algebra I(x, y)Step-by-step explanation:Step 1: DefinePoint (5, 5)

Point (5, -8)

Step 2: Identify(5, 5) → x₁ = 5, y₁ = 5

(5, -8) → x₂ = 5, y₂ = -8

Step 3: Find slopemSimply plug in the 2 coordinates into the slope formula to find slope

mHere 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.
