# Identify The Equation As Horizontal Or Vertical Line Worksheet

## 6 problems

To Identify the equation as horizontal or vertical line, use the following formulas.

• Horizontal Line: $$y = b$$, where the line crosses the $$y$$-axis at $$b$$ is the $$y$$-coordinate. The $$y$$-value is the same for every point.
• Vertical Line: $$x = a$$, where the line crosses the $$x$$-axis at $$a$$ is the $$x$$-coordinate. The $$x$$-value is the same for every point.

## Solved Example

Q. Is the graph of this equation a horizontal or vertical line?$\newline$$y = -8$$\newline$Choices:$\newline$(A) horizontal line$\newline$(B) vertical line
Solution:
1. Equation of line: Equation of line: $\newline$$y = -8$ $\newline$Which value remains the same, $x$ or $y$?$\newline$$y = -8$ tells us that the value of $y$ is always $-8$. $\newline$It represents that $y$ remains the same.
2. Value remains same: Equation of line:$\newline$$y = -8$ $\newline$Is the line horizontal or vertical?$\newline$Since $y$ is constant in $y=-8$, the line is parallel to the $x$-axis.$\newline$So, the graph of $y = -8$ is a horizontal line.
