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

    So the answer is y=-3/2x - 12

    I disagree with that.... look at the slopes.

    |dw: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.

    @cutter reading through your explanations I don't even know what some of them mean. You need to incorporate y to get y? Make sure x reflects? No reason for the 12?
