What is the slope of the line through (-4,-6) and (9,-6)?
- The Y-coordinates of the two points are the same.
It means that the line will be Parallel to the X Axis . A line parallel to the X axis (a horizontal line) has a Slope of Zero (No Steepness, No Inclination)
If we have to provide an explanation with numbers, here is how it would look:
- If the coordinates of the points are
#(x_1,y_1) and (x_2,y_2)#, then #[Slope](http://socratic.org/algebra/graphs-of-linear-equations-and-functions/slope)= (y_2-y_1)/(x_2-x_1)#
Here, the coordinates are
# (-4,-6)#and #(9,-6)#
