Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Have you tried drawing a sketch? 1) Draw a line. 2) Make a second line perpendicular (90 degrees) to the first one. 3) Draw another line perpendicular to the very first line. How are lines 2 and 3 related? (parallel, perpendicular, intersecting at 45 degrees, etc?) Hope this helps.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You can also think about slope. if they are mutually perpendicular to a common line of arbitrary slope, how are their slopes related? (perpendicular lines have opposite reciprocal slopes)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if the common line has slope a, the two perpendiculars have slope 1/a. Since their slope is the same they are parallel
