Equation for a Vertical LineDate: 8/29/96 at 21:44:21 From: dhitchens Subject: Equation for a Vertical Line What is the equation for a vertical line passing through (7, -10)? Date: 8/30/96 at 11:31:34 From: Doctor Mike Subject: Re: Equation for a Vertical Line The equation is " x = 7 ". The vertical axis letter "y" does not figure into this, because ANY point with x = 7 is on that vertical line, including the point (x,y) = (7,-10) . By the way " y = -10 " is the equation for the horizontal line that that passes through 7, -10 . I hope this helps. Write back if you have more questions. -Doctor Mike, The Math Forum Check out our web site! http://mathforum.org/dr.math/ |
