Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You need to use the formula to find the angle between two lines. \[\tan \alpha = \frac{m_2m_1}{1+m_1m_2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0m_2 is typically the greater slope, which is 2 in this case. m_1 is therefore 1.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Since the slope of a line is defined as the tangent of that line with respect to the xaxis, the tangent of the angle between your two lines should give you the relative slope...which I assume is what the question wants.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0full problem is Consider two straight lines L1 (y = 2x +1) and L2 (y=x). a) What is the slope of line L1 in respect to line L2? b) What is the equation of line L1 in respect to line L2? NOTE. Think that the original xy coordinate system has been rotated in respect to the origin so that line L2 defines the new xaxis x´ and y´ is the new yaxis!
