Question

Determine whether each equation could represent a vertical line, a horizontal line, or neither.

a.     x+3.4=0

b. 2x+3y=0

c.     y-10=0

Step 1

a. Determine whether x+3.4=0 represents a horizontal line or vertical line. help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseThe vertical line is represented by an equation in the form of x k, wherek is constant. The given equation x+3.4-0 can be written as x -3.4. Clearly, 3.4 is in the form of xk, so the given equation represents vertical line. Sketch the graph of the equation r+3.4 0 as shown below in Figure 1 x+3.4 0 Figure 1 From Figure , it is observed that the graph of the equation x+3.4 0 is vertical line fullscreen
Step 2

b.2x+3y=0

... help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseSince the given equation 2x+3y 0 is not in the form of either x= k or y concluded that it is neither horizontal line nor vertical line. k, it can be Sketch the graph of the equation 2x+3y-0 as shown below in Figure 2 2x+3y=0 Figure 2 From Figure 2, it is observed that the graph of the equation 2x+3y 0 is vertical line. fullscreen
