    yes 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=2x-9 Need to find a line parallel to this solution.

    pick any line with slope 2

    the ":explanation in complete sentences" is that parallel lines have the same slope

    OOOH okay that makes so much sense thank you so much!

    so you can make it \(y=2x\) or \(y=2x+1\) or \(y=2x-5\) or \(y=2x+anything\)

    @satellite73 does a perpendicular line have the same Y intercept then?

    not 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

    maybe if you write the exact question as written i can give a better answer

    Give an example written in slope intercept form (y = mx + b) of a line perpendicular to your solution in Part 2. 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=2x-9

    ok forget the y intercept, it has nothing to do with it

    the slope of \(y=2x-9\) is \(2\) right?

    yes

    the slope of the perpendicular line will be the "negative reciprocal" of 2, which means flip it and change the sign

    so the slope of the perpendicular line will be \(-\frac{1}{2}\)

    Okay got it i was writing that down as soon as you said flip the sign. All of this is coming back to me now.

    so you can write ANY line with slope \(-\frac{1}{2}\) you choose
