`f(x) = 6` is a horizontal line through y = 6.  Since it has a slope of zero, the function is not increasing or decreasing.  It is a constant function.

is a horizontal line through y = 6;  it crosses the y axis and has zero slope so it is a constant function.  Increasing and decreasing functions would have a slope other than 0.
