# How do you write an equation of a line given (-5,-6), m=0?

May 1, 2017

See the solution process below.

#### Explanation:

Because the slope of the line is $0$, by definition, this is a horizontal line.

Horizontal lines have the form: $y = a$ Where $a$ is the same value for $y$ for every value of $x$.

Because the $y$ value in the point from the problem is $- 6$ we can write the equation as:

$y = - 6$
