Zero

Undefined

### Equation of Vertical Line

x = a number (where it crosses x-axis)

### Equation of Horizontal Line

y = a number (where it crosses y-axis)

y = mx + b

Ax + By = C

### Point-Slope Form of Equation of LIne

y - y1 = m(x - x1)

### Slope Formula

m = (y2 - y1) / (x2 - x1)

m

b

### y-intercept

Point where line crosses y-axis (put in zero for x): (0,b)

### x-intercept

Point where line crosses x-axis (put in zero for y): (a,0)
