No. The slope of a horizontal line is zero. The slope of a vertical line is undefined.

A line with slope of zero is horizontal. A line with no slope is vertical because slope is undefined on a vertical line.

the formula for slope is y=mx+b, a horizontal line has the slope of zero and the slope of a vertical line can be answered as undefined

No. A horizontal line has a slope of 0. A vertical line has an undefined slope. Let's say you have a vertical line with the points (3,-2) and (3,4). The slope is (y1-y2)/(x1-x2) = (-2-4)/(3-3) = -6/0 = undefined. Notice that x is the same for both points. A line in which all points have the same value for x is a vertical line and as such has an undefined slope.

Undefined slope is a vertical line along the horizontal point of origin., the slope would have a denominator of zero, which is undefined.
