Question in a REVISION PACK that I just can't do and it's driving me mad.
Please help?
Find the equation of the straight line which passes through the point (-2,6) and is parallel to the line with equation x=3.

If x=3, then the gradient of the line I'm supposed to find the equation of is undefined, right? Or am I hallucinating or something...
Anyways, any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks.

yea gradients of vertical lines are undefined.

The Standard equation of a vertical line is ' x=a ' where a is the x-intercept. Since its a vertical line, x stays constant throughout.

Therefore the equation of your line is x = -2.
