Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no, the lines aren't intersecting

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I just need the explaination of the formula to tell whether or not it is parallel or intersecting and col linear

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thats all it is given, theres a formula for solving but I don't know it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ex: y = 9x + 20 has the slope of 9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry the lines are not intersecting. Extremely sorry, I made a mistake. They have same slopes, so they should be parallel.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I guess its four right? thats fine

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.14 is the slope, yes

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1since the slope is 4 for both of the lines, the lines are either parallel or collinear

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the two lines are collinear if and only if the two yintercepts are the same

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1otherwise, the two lines are parallel

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0one passes from y=3 and other from y=1, so they are parallel(since slopes are same) but not colinear.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so if its the same its parallel and what happens if its collinear?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no, if the yintercepts are the same, the lines are collinear if the yintercepts are different, the lines are parallel both cases are true when the slopes are both equal

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ok i see, so it is collinear right?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what are the yintercepts for both lines?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i need help finding the y intercepts pls

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1y = mx+b b is the yintercept  ex: for y = 2x+11 11 is the yintercept  ex: y = 14x13 which is the same as y = 14x + (13) 13 is the yintercept

math_crasher

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in this case the y intercepts are the same, which is 4x? And what do I do with the 1 and 3?

pitankar

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to find Y=intercept, put x=0 in each equation. simple. Any point on yaxis is represented as x=0 and y=Y

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no, that's not the yintercept

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1y = 4x + 1, y intercept is 1

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1look back up at my 2nd to last post

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh right then the y intercepts aren't the same

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so the lines are parallel

math_crasher

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ah ok what will happen if its intersecting?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if the slopes are different, then the lines will intersect

math_crasher

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what about collinear?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if the slopes are the same and the yintercepts are the same, then the two lines are collinear
