What is a slope on a linear graph?

The slope is the magnitude of the line upwards or downwards, commonly referred to as "rise over run". The rise is how much the graph goes up in a certain distance, and the run is how much the graph goes over horizontally that same distance. To find the slope in that situation, you have to divide the rise by the run.

Why do vertical lines have an undefined slope?

because, when you go, lets say, (2,3), and the line is on the 2, you change the second number, not the 2, but the 3.The slope of a line is the ratio of rise over run. On a vertical line you have an infinite rise over zero run. Your slope would be infinity/0. As you know, you cannot divide by 0, so the slop is undefined.
