# What is the equation of a vertical line passing through the point (3, -5)?

**Solution:**

Given, the point is (3, -5)

We have to find the __equation__ of a vertical line passing through the given point.

The equation of a vertical line in the graph, which is parallel to the __y-axis__ is x = a,

where a can be any value on the x-axis

The slope of a vertical line is infinite or undefined as it has no __y-intercept__ and the denominator in the __slope__ formula is zero.

Since the line passes through the point (3, -5)

x = 3

Therefore, the equation of the vertical line is x = 3

## What is the equation of a vertical line passing through the point (3, -5)?

**Summary:**

The equation of a vertical line passing through the point (3, -5) is x = 3.
