Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0put them both in the form y=mx+b, if m is equal for both, they are parallel. If you can flip m of one equation and change it's sign and it equals the m of the other, they are perpendicular. If neither of these conditions exists, it's neither parallel or perpendicular

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For perpendicular check, you multiply both m's, if they equal 1 they are perpendicular, do u know how to put them into y=mx+b format?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0move y to one side and isolate it....3x+4y=8... 4y=83x...y=(83x)/4...y=23/4x...y=3/4x+2....the number atached to x is your m

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so (3/4) = .75 right? times x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well yeah, but you have to compare (3/4) to the m of your other equation to see if they are parallel or perpendicular
