# What is the equation of the line through point (-1.5, 4.6) with slope 0?

Nov 19, 2015

$y = 4.6$

#### Explanation:

The slop (gradient) is the amount of up (or down) for the amount along. So if the gradient is 0 it does not have any up or down. So it must be parallel to the x-axis.

If it is parallel to the x axis it is defined as $y = \left(\text{some constant value}\right)$

So if $\left(x , y\right) \to \left(- 1.5 , 4.6\right)$ the value of x is of no consequence at all.

We have: $y = 4.6$ as the complete equation.
