Find two sets of coordinates for two lines that when drawn create a pair of lines. Show the lines are either parallel or not parallel by showing your work with the slope formula for each line. Then, write an equation of a line parallel to one of the lines in slopeintercept form that contains the point (1,3). You must show all work and steps to receive credit.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, two parallel line must have the same slope . Let use a random one like Y=ax+b Let's use slope equals to 3 So Y=3x+b Substituting the point (1,3) value we get this equation Y= 3x+10 A parallel equation would be Y=3x+4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, I have one line at (5, 36) and (12, 30), so what would be an equation that is parallel?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Y=ax+b First point 36=5a+b Second point 30=12a+b System 36=5a+b 30=12a+b (1)  36=5a+b 30=12ab  6=7a a=6/7 So 36=5.(6/7)+b 36=30/7+b b=252+30/7 b=282/7 Function y=6/7x+282/7
