Since the line is perpendicular to the y-axis, it will be a horizontal line that runs through (6,−1).
In this case, the x-coordinate doesn't matter; no matter what, if the line is horizontal to the y-axis, it will be horizontal, and thus it will be the same value regardless of the x-value.
In this case, the y-value is −1 throughout the line.
