Lines, Lines, Lines!!! ~ Horizontal Lines Vertical Lines

What is a Horizontal Line?
A Horizontal Line is a line that goes straight from left to right (or right to left) parallel to the x-axis of the coordinate plane. All of the points on the line will have the same y-coordinates.

What’s a Vertical Line? A Vertical Line is a line that goes straight up and down Parallel to the y-axis of the coordinate plane. All of the points on the line will have the same x-coordinates.

The Possibilities for a Line’s Slope:
Positive Slope x y m > 0 Line rises from left to right. Negative Slope x y m < 0 Line falls from left to right.

The Possibilities for a Line’s Slope:
m is undefined Undefined Slope x y Line is vertical. Zero Slope x y m = 0 Line is horizontal. m = 2

Equations Horizontal and Vertical Lines
Horizontal line: y = b Vertical line: x = a Where b, a are Constants x = 2 Graph: x = 2 and y = -1 x y x y y = -1 Vertical line Horizontal line

Equations Horizontal and Vertical Lines
Let’s look at a line with a y-intercept of 4, a slope m = 0, and let (x, 4) be any point on the Horizontal line. Y-axis X-axis (0,4) (x,4)

Equations Horizontal and Vertical Lines
Let’s look at a line with no y-intercept b, an x-intercept 3, an undefined slope m, and let (3, y) be any point on the vertical line. Y-axis X-axis (3,0) (3, y)

The Equation for Horizontal Lines
Therefore… The Equation for a Horizontal line going through the points (a, b), (7, b), (-4, b), (z, b), (3, b), (-10, b), ect is… y = b

The Equation for Vertical Lines
Therefore… The Equation for a Vertical line going through the points (a, 2), (a, a), (a, 5), (a, 7), (a, z), (a, -10), ect is… x = a
