How do you find the slope of the line passing through the points (2, –5) and (0, –5)? Algebra Graphs of Linear Equations and Functions Horizontal and Vertical Line Graphs 1 Answer BRIAN M. May 13, 2016 The slope is #m = 0# Explanation: The formula for the slope of a line based upon two coordinate points is #m = (y_2-y_1)/(x_2-x_1)# For the coordinate points #(2,-5) and (0,-5)# #x_1 = 2# #x_2 = 0# #y_1 = -5# #y_2 = -5# #m = (-5-(-5))/(2-0)# #m = 0/2# The slope is #m = 0# Answer link Related questions What are horizontal or vertical line graphs?
