    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

    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
