I have a few problems where you are given a point and an equation and you have to find an equation that is either parallel or perpendicular. I just don't get it at all...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know, but what am I to do with the points I'm given? Do I plug them in the equation or what? I'm confused.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay. One of them is Find an equation of the line meeting the specified conditions. Write the final answer in slopeintercept form. Containing the point (2,6) and parallel to y=4x1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y=4x1 if parallel use the same slope : 4 and creative another line y 6 = 4(x  2) y 6 = 4x +8 y = 4x +8 +6 y = 4x + 14 now line : y=4x1 parallel to line y = 4x + 14

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, let's say I have one that has the points (0,5) and perpendicular to y=6x + 8. How would I go about solving that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y=6x + 8 perpendicular use 6 flip = 1/6 and negative side is :  1/6 y (5) =1/6( x 0) y +5 = 1/6x y = 1/6x 5 line: y=6x + 8 is: perpendicular to y = 1/6x 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now, what if I have a problem where it only has y? For example, points (0,9) and parallel to 4y=8

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know y=2 but I'm lost as to what to do next

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, well. Going back to the form y=mx + b, what is your m?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0would it be 0? or undefined?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It would be 0. y = 0x + 2 = 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y=2 is a straight horizontal line that goes through the y axis at y=2 and doesn't increase or decrease with a change in x.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So the slope is 0. Now to find a new line that is parallel means that the new line has the same slope.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But instead of going through y=2, it goes through y=9

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I ended up with y=0x 9 but I'm not sure if that's right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.04y=8 y = 2 slope =0 y9= 0(x0) y = 9 line 4y=8 parallel to line y = 9

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y=9 if you want perpendicular to line 4y=8

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No. y=9 is parallel to the line y=2. They both have a 0 slope. One intersects (0,9) the other intersects (0,9)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0One intersects(0,9) and the other intersects(0,2) rather
