    Let A=(0,0), B=(6,2), C=(-5,2), D=(7,6), E=(-1,7), and F=(5,9). Draw lines AB,CD,and EF. Verify that they are parallel. (A) draw the transversal of slope -1 that goes through E. this transversal intersects line AB at G and line CD at H. (B) draw any transversal whose slope is 2 (it needs to not go through E) intersecting line AB at P, line CD at Q, and line EF at R. Use your ruler to measure PQ and QR

    Find the slopes of the lines to show that they are parallel

    Shouldn't I first graph it?

    a. Start at point E. Go down 1 and right 1. Draw that line.

    intersecting line AB at P

    So I'll draw a line right in (2,0) correct?

    Do you know what a transversal is?

    A transversal is a line that goes between 2 parallel lines.

    That's why the problem started by telling you to draw AB, CD, and EF and then to verify that they are parallel.

    Oh so then 2 does go into two parallel lines

    Once you have parallel lines, you can draw transversals
