What are the equations of Horizontal and Vertical Lines
How many horizontal and vertical lines do you count on this famous painting (do you know the name of the artist)? What will the equation of each line look like? IN this section I will explain to you all you need to know about horizontal and vertical lines to pass your IGCSE GCSE Maths exam. I will explain to you what their gradient is and what the equation of horizontal and vertical lines look like. On many occasions you will be asked to give the gradient of a horizontal or vertical line. Many students find these lines, unnecessarily, very confusing. If you truly understand what the gradient of a line is, you will always be able to give the gradient of a vertical or horizontal line, without having to remember anything. The following video will show you why.
