## ineedyouubiebs 2 years ago I need help in this!!!!! Like much help ****ill write the question attAched***

1. ineedyouubiebs

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

@Mertsj

3. Mertsj

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

4. ineedyouubiebs

Shouldn't I first graph it?

5. ineedyouubiebs

@Mertsj ?

6. Mertsj

If you want that would be fine.

7. ineedyouubiebs

I already drew it. I just don't get a and b @Mertsj

8. Mertsj

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

9. ineedyouubiebs

Okay I did that , what's the next step?

10. Mertsj

b. Choose a point. Go up 2 and right 1. Draw that line.

11. ineedyouubiebs

By choose a point , what point?

12. ineedyouubiebs

@Mertsj ?

13. Mertsj

14. Mertsj

draw any transversal whose slope is 2

15. Mertsj

intersecting line AB at P

16. ineedyouubiebs

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

17. Mertsj

Do you know what a transversal is?

18. ineedyouubiebs

No.

19. Mertsj

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

20. Mertsj

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

21. ineedyouubiebs

Oh so then 2 does go into two parallel lines

22. Mertsj

Once you have parallel lines, you can draw transversals

23. ineedyouubiebs

Okay I drew it.

24. Mertsj

Does it intersect all the lines?

25. ineedyouubiebs

Yes it does.

26. Mertsj

Did you label the points of intersection P, Q, and R?

27. ineedyouubiebs

Just did. And I got it ow. Thank so oso much (:
