    can you find slope of any given line ?

    like say , x-5y = -10 is a line. can you find slope of this line first ?

    Uh no not really... with a quick review I probably can

    good, so i have x-5y =-10 i will try to isolate y and bring it in the form y=mx+c where m=slope so, x=5y-10 5y = x+10 y= (1/5)x +2 got this ?

    oh and i forgot to mention, y= (1/5)x +2 comparing with y=mx+c gives, m=slope = 1/5

    4x+2y=5 2y=-4x+5 Y-(-1/2)x+2.5 ?

    2y=-4x+5 is correct, but then divide both sides by 2 what u get ?

    Good! now here's the rule : slope of parallel lines are equal! so, for the last one, slope of line parallel to 4x+y=-1 will also be m=-4 :) so, for last, the correct option will be `C) m=-4` got this ? in same way, can you match the 2nd last and 3rd last ?

    another rule, `product of slopes of perpendicular lines = -1 ` so, for 1st one we had slope = 1/5 let slope of perpendicular line be m. so, \(\Large m\times (1/5)=-1\) find m from here :)

    1st one is m=1/5? 2cnd one is m=1/3? It seems like these would be the answers but they are not possible to be selected.

    Well I still don't exactly get how it goes from (1/5) to -1...

    product of slopes = -1 is the rule so, m (1/5) =-1 multiplying by 5, m = -5 got this ?

    multiplying by 5 on both sides.

    I'm confused on the product of slopes part, I get the multiplying on both sides. So like can you explain the product of slopes rule.. I tried looking it up on google but nothing I can comprehend really comes up.

    if say line 1 has slope M1 and line 2 has slope M2 now if these 2 lines are perpendicular to each other, then M1*M2 =-1

    another way to remember the same thing is, the slope of line is negative reciprocal of the perpendicular line, so, slope of line perpendicular to line with slope 1/5 will be - (1/(1/5)) = -5

    so, thats your 1st one, m =-5 for 2nd one, we had slope = 1/3, so m *(1/3) = -1 so, m=-3 is the answer to 2nd one :)
