Find the equation of the line which contains P(1,5) and which is perpendicular to the x axis


Expert Answer

Step 1

Given, the equation of line contains the point (1,5) and is perpendicualar to x-axis.

Step 2


The line is perpendicular to the x–axis is a vertical line and will be parallel to y-axis that have the slope equal to infinity or zero.

Any straight line perpendicular to the x-axis has the equation of the form x=a, where a is constant or for all points of such line the x-coordinate is same and equal to a.

Therefore, if the ...
