How do I convert x = -1 to slope-intercept form?

Apr 23, 2018

$\text{see explanation}$

Explanation:

$x = - 1 \text{ cannot be written in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form}$

$\text{this line is a special case in that it is a vertical line and}$
$\text{parallel to the y-axis passing through all points in the}$
$\text{plane with an x-coordinate } = - 1$

$\text{because it is vertical it's slope is undefined and it does}$
$\text{not intersect the y-axis}$

$\text{see graph of "x=-1" below}$
graph{(y-1000x-1000)=0 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
