# How do you find the slope for Y= 5?

May 13, 2017

See a solution explanation below:

#### Explanation:

By definition the equation of a horizontal line is $y = a$ where $a$ is a constant, in this case $5$.

Also, by definition, the slope of a horizontal line is $0$

Therefore, the slope of $y = 5$ is $0$

$s l o p e = 0$

#### Explanation:

$s l o p e = \frac{\Delta y}{\Delta x}$

Therefore, with $y = 5$ for any $x$ :

$s l o p e = \frac{5 - 5}{\Delta x}$

$s l o p e = 0$
