### A vertical or horizontal line used in graphs is called a?

Vertical and horizontal lines in most graphs are called axes
(plural of axis). They create the plane on which the graph sits.
The X axis is the horizontal axis and goes across the graph. The Y
axis is vertical axis and goes up and down the graph. They could
also be lines which depict places that the graph never touches;
this would be called an asymptote.
