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? .
