# If the tangent line at a point (x, y) on the curve

Question:

If the tangent line at a point $(x, y)$ on the curve $y=f(x)$ is parallel to $y$-axis, find the value of $\frac{d x}{d y}$.

Solution:

Slope of the $y$-axis $=\infty$

$\therefore$ Slope of the tangent $\frac{\mathrm{dy}}{\mathrm{dx}}=\infty$

$\frac{\mathrm{dx}}{\mathrm{dy}}=\frac{1}{\infty}=0$
