what is the slope of a line that is perpendicular to the x-axis?

OpenStudy (flying_dutchman):

Any line parallel to the x-axis has a slope of zero.

ahaa..you're right, then it's undefined.

Perpendicular to x-axis = vertical line. If you have a point (3,5) and (3,6) then your slope is (6-5)/(3-3) = 1/0 Division by zero makes the universe esplode.
