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?
If you want that would be fine.
I already drew it. I just don't get a and b @Mertsj
a. Start at point E. Go down 1 and right 1. Draw that line.
Okay I did that , what's the next step?
b. Choose a point. Go up 2 and right 1. Draw that line.
By choose a point , what point?
Did you read the directions?
draw any transversal whose slope is 2
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
Okay I drew it.
Does it intersect all the lines?
Yes it does.
Did you label the points of intersection P, Q, and R?
Just did. And I got it ow. Thank so oso much (:
