# The equation of the line through point (-5, 0) and parallel to the y-axis is

**Solution:**

Given, the point is (-5, 0)

We have to find the equation of the line passing through the given point and parallel to the y-axis.

The equation of the line passing through a point is given by \((y-y_{1})=m(x-x_{1})\)

Where, m is the slope

Since, the slope is undefined.

Any line parallel to y-axis has undefined slope and the line is in the form x = k.

k is the x-coordinate of the point through which the line is passing.

From the given point,

x-coordinate = -5

The equation is x = -5

Therefore, the equation of the line is x + 5 = 0.

## The equation of the line through point (-5, 0) and parallel to the y-axis is

**Summary:**

The equation of the line through point (-5, 0) and parallel to the y-axis is x + 5 = 0.
