## What do horizontal lines indicate?

In more simple terms, a horizontal line on any chart is where the y-axis values are equal. If it has been drawn to show a series of highs in the data, a data point moving above the horizontal line would indicate a rise in the y-axis value over recent values in the data sample.

### Do horizontal lines have limits?

The difference is that horizontal asymptotes are drawn as dashed horizontal lines in a graph, while limits (when they exist) are numbers.

#### What do horizontal lines have in common?

A horizontal line is one the goes left-to-right, parallel to the x-axis of the coordinate plane. All points on the line will have the same y-coordinate. In the figure above, drag either point and note that the line is horizontal when they both have the same y-coordinate. A horizontal line has a slope of zero.

**Are horizontal lines positive?**

It can’t be a positive slope. A slope of zero means the line is horizontal, and a slope of zero means the line is zero. All horizontal lines are of the form “y” and the equation “y” always graphs as a horizontal line.

**Why are all horizontal lines parallel?**

All horizontal lines are parallel. Parallel means that two or more lines can never intersect with one another. Horizontal lines are straight lines going from left to right without any angles, tilt, rotation in terms of x & y axis, etc. Therefore, they should never intersect, which is the definition of parallel.

## What is the horizontal line at 0 called?

Know why it’s called the horizon? It’s a horizontal line! And just like the horizon, horizontal lines go straight left and right.

### Do horizontal lines have y intercepts?

The horizontal line is represented by the equation, y = 3. The vertical line is represented by the equation, x = -1. The vertical line has an undefined slope and does not have a y-intercept. The horizontal line has a y-intercept of (0, 3) and a slope of zero.

#### Can a horizontal line be a function?

Yup. It represents a function that gives the same output no matter what input you give it. Usually written as f(x)=a (so, for instance, f(x)=5 is one such function), and called a constant function.

**Where do limits not exist?**

Here are the rules: If the graph has a gap at the x value c, then the two-sided limit at that point will not exist. If the graph has a vertical asymptote and one side of the asymptote goes toward infinity and the other goes toward negative infinity, then the limit does not exist.

**How do you know if a limit exists algebraically?**

Find the limit by finding the lowest common denominator

- Find the LCD of the fractions on the top.
- Distribute the numerators on the top.
- Add or subtract the numerators and then cancel terms.
- Use the rules for fractions to simplify further.
- Substitute the limit value into this function and simplify.

## Do all lines have y intercepts?

Not all lines have an x- and y-intercept. This line does not cross the x-axis. Similarly, the line x=2 is a vertical line which does not cross the y-axis.

### How do you find the Y intercept of a horizontal line?

Horizontal lines have a slope of 0. Thus, in the slope-intercept equation y = mx + b, m = 0. The equation becomes y = b, where b is the y-coordinate of the y-intercept.

#### What is an example of a horizontal line?

Examples. Look at a wall, and look down to where that wall meets the floor. That intersection is a horizontal line. Other examples of horizontal lines we may see every day are the following: the line separating the sky from the land across a clear plain or the line separating the sky from the water at the beach.
