    parallel: y = -x - 1 perpendicular: y = x + 2 parallel: y = x - 1 perpendicular: y = -x + 1 parallel: y = x + 1 perpendicular: y = -x - 3 parallel: y = 2x - 2 perpendicular: y = -2x - 1

    A line parallel to: y = x + 5 will have same slope.

    so do i have to like use y-y1=m(x-x1) for all of them to find which one has the same slope

    Yes. One equation can be found out by: y - (-1) = 1(x-(-2))

    then in case there is two with the same slope, the reciprocal will be the slope of the perpendicular line right?

    The first one will be with same slope. The second one will be the reciprocal one. Which will be -1.
