If you want to make a table of values for a line with equation x = 3, that means you have no choice for what your x values can be- they all must be 3. The y values in your table can be whatever you want, because we aren't tied to a relationship between x and y in an equation. This will end up giving you a vertical line. Alternatively, if you have an equation like y = 1, all of the y's in your table must be 1, but the x's can be whatever you want. You'll end up with a horizontal line.
