A rectangle is drawn on a coordinate grid. The equation for 1 side of the rectangle is 3x  2y = 12. Which could be an equation for another side of the rectangle?
y = 3/2x + 5
y = 3x+12
y=3/2x  12
y = 2x  5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I disagree with that.... look at the slopes.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1327090138855:dw One of the defining characteristics of a rectangle is that side a is parallel to side c, side b is parallel to side d, and the two sets of parallel lines are perpendicular to each other. The slope of the line given in the equation is 3/2. That means that the slope of any other side of the rectangle needs to be either parallel ( = 3/2) or perpendicular ( = 2/3). Only one of the answer choices given satisfies that criterion.
