Chapter 2 - Section 2.3 - Writing Equations of Lines - 2.3 Exercises: 66

Answer

$2y+9=0$

Work Step by Step

Using $y-y_1=m(x-x_1)$ or the point-slope form of linear equations, the equation of the line passing through $ \left( -\dfrac{5}{8},-\dfrac{9}{2} \right)$ and with a slope of $m= 0 $ is \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} y-\left( -\dfrac{9}{2} \right)=0 \left(x-\left( -\dfrac{5}{8} \right) \right) \\\\ y+\dfrac{9}{2}=0 \left(x+\dfrac{5}{8} \right) \\\\ y+\dfrac{9}{2}=0 \\\\ 2y+9=0 .\end{array}
