# What is the slope of #y= -5#?

0.

The slope is 0.

Remember what constitutes a slope:

Or

However, since y is -5 everywhere and does not increase or decrease, the numerator is zero. Additionally, since the denominator is non-zero, the slope is also zero.

The slope of vertical lines approaches infinity because infinity is not a number.
