The equation, #x = C#, (where C is any real number) describes a vertical line and vertical lines have an undefined slope.

Answer:

#"slope is undefined"#

Explanation:

#" the line with equation " x=5" is a vertical line"#
#"parallel to the y-axis and passing through all points"#
#"in the plane with an x-coordinate of 5"#

#"since it is parallel to the y-axis the slope is "color(blue)"undefined"#

the #slope# of a linear #equation# can be expressed

  • # color(red)(tan)color(purple)(theta)# #color(pink)#(where #theta# is the angle made in the anticlock wise direction with the x axis)

here #theta# is #90# #degrees#
now, of course
# color(blue)(tan)color(red)(90)# is undefined
the slope is undefined
