Answer

There is an undefined slope.

Work Step by Step

Our two points are: (-5, 0.124), (-5, -0.584) The Slope Formula is: $\frac{y1−y2}{x1−x2}$ Lets plug our two points in to this slope formula to find the slope of these two points: $\frac{0.124-(-0.584)}{-5-(-5)}$ =$\frac{0.708}{0}$ We cannot divide any number by zero so therefore this slope is undefined.
