ok are you looking for the slope of the parallel line that contains (0,5)?

pinkwhispers80 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
but t sure how to work it

The points given are: (3,0) = (x1,y1) and ( 0,5) = (x2,y2) Plug these values in the equation you gave me.

yes but the way he has writtin it is that horizontal line that contains (3,0)

ChrisV Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
parallel line contains (5,0)

Can you clarify your question Pinkwhispers80? It seems to have a bit of a wording problem.

ChrisV Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
that would mean both lines have no slope
 2 years ago

ChrisV Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
because they would both be horizontal

When two lines are parallel, they simply would not have a slope Whispers

I have a graph that contains a line with points being (3,0) and (0,5) I need to find the slope but Im not sure how

I believe Chris is headed the right direction

Well then, you can use what I had previously posted.

ChrisV Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
do are you given a horizontal line and parallel line or both points on one line?
 2 years ago

ChrisV Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
just weird to use the words horizontal and parallel because that says they are two sperate lines

pinkwhispers80 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
sorry I didnt know that its one line
