5147 Horizontal & Vertical Graphs - Quiz

Sometimes the gradient for a line is zero (ie. Y=4) and sometimes it is undefined because it is vertical (ie. X=-3). This quiz tests your ability to write equations for horizontal and vertical lines, and identify if a gradient is undefined or zero.

    The gradient of the graph above is best described as :

    • A.

      Undefined

    • B.

      Zero

    Correct Answer
    A. Undefined
    Explanation
    The gradient of the graph above is best described as undefined because there is a vertical line in the graph, which means that the change in y is infinite for any change in x. In other words, the slope of the graph cannot be determined because there is no consistent rate of change between the x and y values.

    The gradient of the graph above is best described as :

    • A.

      Zero

    • B.

      Undefined

    Correct Answer
    A. Zero
    Explanation
    The gradient of the graph is described as zero because it has a constant slope and does not change. This means that for every change in the x-axis, there is no change in the y-axis. The graph is a horizontal line, indicating that the rate of change is zero. Therefore, the gradient is zero.

    The gradient of the graph above is best described as :

    • A.

      Undefined

    • B.

      Zero

    Correct Answer
    A. Undefined
    Explanation
    The gradient of the graph is best described as undefined because the graph does not have a constant slope. The gradient of a graph represents the rate of change of the dependent variable with respect to the independent variable. In this case, since the graph does not have a consistent slope, it is not possible to determine a specific value for the gradient. Therefore, the correct answer is undefined.

    The gradient of the graph above is best described as :

    • A.

      Undefined

    • B.

      Zero

    Correct Answer
    A. Undefined
    Explanation
    The gradient of the graph is best described as undefined because there is no consistent or constant rate of change between any two points on the graph. The graph may have vertical lines or sharp turns, indicating that the slope or gradient is not defined at those points.

    The gradient of the graph above is best described as :

    • A.

      Undefined

    • B.

      Zero

    Correct Answer
    A. Undefined
    Explanation
    The gradient of a graph represents the rate of change of the dependent variable with respect to the independent variable. In this case, if the gradient is undefined, it means that the graph does not have a consistent rate of change. This could occur when there is a vertical line or a sharp corner in the graph, where the slope becomes infinite. Therefore, the best description for the gradient of the graph in this case is undefined.
