Their Slopes -andThat Go Parallel and Perpendicular

use distance formula to find out missing coordinate .How to Know the ³m´ in y=mx+b  (Difference of y-values) divided by (difference of x-values) ± if needed.

Parallel-ers  have the same slope (coefficient before x) as the given equation  have different y-intercepts (³b´ in y=mx+b) ± if two equations had the same slope AND yintercept. they overlap or coincide each other  Example: ± Which equation is parallel to y = 2x + 5?  ±46x + 92y = 460  17y ± 8 = 34x  38y = -18x + 1 .

Parallel-ers  have the same slope (coefficient before x) as the given equation  have different y-intercepts (³b´ in y=mx+b) ± if two equations had the same slope AND yintercept. they overlap or coincide each other  Example: ± Which equation is parallel to y = 2x + 5?  ±46x + 92y = 460 (colinear)  17y ± 8 = 34x (parallel)  38y = -19x + 1 (perpendicular) .

Perpendicular-ers  have a slope that is the negative reciprocal to the given equation¶s slope ± negative reciprocal of -13/9 is 9/13 ± slopes of both equations multiplied together equal a product of -1  y-intercept does not matter  Example: ± What¶s the value of a in 38y = a + 4 if the line is perpendicular to ±46x + 92y = 460? .
