Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes Give an example written in slope intercept form (y = mx + b) of a line parallel to your solution in Part 2.Provide an explanation in a complete sentence of the relationship between the slopes of parallel lines. My solution for the question before this was Y=2x9 Need to find a line parallel to this solution.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the ":explanation in complete sentences" is that parallel lines have the same slope

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OOOH okay that makes so much sense thank you so much!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you can make it \(y=2x\) or \(y=2x+1\) or \(y=2x5\) or \(y=2x+anything\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@satellite73 does a perpendicular line have the same Y intercept then?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0not sure what you are asking it is possible that two perpendicular lines have the same y intercept, for example \[y=\frac{1}{2}x+3\] has the same y intercept as \(y=2x+3\) (they are both 3) but they certainly don't have to have the same y intercept

Provide an explanation in a complete sentence of the relationship between the slopes of perpendicular lines. i have to do the same thing just find a line thats perpendicular to Y=2x9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok forget the y intercept, it has nothing to do with it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the slope of \(y=2x9\) is \(2\) right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the slope of the perpendicular line will be the "negative reciprocal" of 2, which means flip it and change the sign

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the slope of the perpendicular line will be \(\frac{1}{2}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay got it i was writing that down as soon as you said flip the sign. All of this is coming back to me now.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you can write ANY line with slope \(\frac{1}{2}\) you choose
