# Find the equation of the horizontal line passing through the point (-5, 3).

**Solution:**

The __slope__ of a horizontal line is 0.

If the horizontal line passes through point (-5, 3) then the __equation of the line__ is

y - y₁ = m(x - x₁)

(y - 3) = m(x - 5)

Since the line is horizontal m = 0

y - 3 = 0 × (x - 5)

y - 3 = 0

y = 3 is the required equation

## Find the equation of the horizontal line passing through the point (-5, 3).

**Summary:**

The equation of the horizontal line passing through the point (-5, 3) is y = 3.
