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

Do you know what a transversal is?

MertsjBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
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
