How do you write an equation of the horizontal line passing through the point (-1, -8)?

2 Answers



The line passes through the point #(-1, -8)#

It is parallel to the #x-# axis

Its equation is #y=-8#

enter image source here

y = -8


A horizontal line has a slope of 0. The y value does not change it is always the same.

In this case the y value is always -8 . the x value will change but not the y value.
