The slope of a vertical line is not defined.

No, vertical lines have an undefined slope.

Yes.

For vertical lines, when you try to figure out the slope, you get zero in the denominator - in other words, a division by zero.

No. Horizontal lines have zero slope. Vertical lines have infinite slope.

run as in slope of a line is zero . horizontal lines have no slope and vertical lines have a slope of zero

The slope of a vertical line is not defined.

No, vertical lines have an undefined slope.

When the lines are horizontal and vertical. (slope of zero) (undefined slope)

It is not defined.

Although all lines have the relationship that defines slope, one can argue that not all lines do have one. The exception would be vertical lines. Slope is defined as the vertical rate of change divided by the horizontal rate of change. In the case of a vertical line, there is no horizontal rate of change, and calculating slope would cause division by zero. The closest you could come to expressing the slope of a vertical line would be ∞

Vertical lines always have an undefined slope. Slope for y = f(x) is given by :slope = dy/dxdx is zero at any point along a vertical line, making the slope undefined along a vertical line.

The slope of a vertical line is undefined. The slope of a horizontal line is 0. Hope this helps.
