## Notamathgenius 2 years ago Determine whether the graphs of the two equations are parallel perpendicular or neither. Explain

1. Notamathgenius

2x - 5y =0 $y + 3 = \frac{ 5 }{ 2 }$

2. Notamathgenius

The first one i think is Parallel

3. locitalovesu

They are perpendicular to each other

4. locitalovesu

The second one is parallel to the x axis

5. locitalovesu

While the first one is not paralle with either that y or x axis

10. locitalovesu

The slanted on is the first one The straight one is the second one

11. Notamathgenius

So i got it right then? 1.Neither 2.Perpendicular

12. annacn1024

are you sure the second equation isn't y+3 = (5/2)x ?

13. locitalovesu

No the fist one is perpendicular and the second one is parallel to the x axis

14. Notamathgenius

I did it exactly how it was written

15. locitalovesu

|dw:1368728047294:dw|

16. annacn1024

if the second equation is y+3 = (5/2)x, then the two graphs are perpendicular to each other. If the second equation is y+3=5/2 then the two graphs are not related.

Ok thank you :)
