#### Answer:

#### Explanation:

A line parallel to the y-axis, passes through all points in the plane with the same x-coordinate. For this reason it's equation is.

#color(red)(bar(ul(|color(white)(2/2)color(black)(x=c)color(white)(2/2)|)))#

where c is the value of the x-coordinate of the points it passes through.The line passes through the point

#(color(red)(4),2)#

#rArrx=4" is the equation"#
