#### Explanation:

m is the gradient which is the amount of up or down for 1 along.

However, m=0 which means that there is no up or down. Consequently the line is horizontal (parallel to x-axis)

This horizontal line passes through

So this horizontal line passes through

This is the equation of the line.
