To graph a vertical line that goes through a given point, first plot that point. Then draw a straight line up and down that goes through the point, and you're done! To see this process in action, watch this tutorial!
To graph a horizontal line that goes through a given point, first plot that point. Then draw a straight line left and right that goes through the point, and you're done! To see this process in action, watch this tutorial!
You may be able to guess that vertical lines are lines that go straight up and down, but did you know that all vertical lines have the same slope? In this tutorial, learn all about vertical lines including their slope and what the equation of a vertical line looks like!
Ever look at the horizon when the sun is rising or setting? Know why it's called the horizon? It's a horizontal line! And just like the horizon, horizontal lines go straight left and right. In this tutorial, you'll learn all about horizontal lines including their slope and what the equation of a horizontal line looks like.
