the slope must be the same

  • dan815
-1 is the slope now write the equation of a line with slope -1 and that goes through the point -3,1

parallel lines have the same slope, while perpendicular lines have the "oppsite reciprocal" slope which is another way to say when multiplied they equal to -1
AbdullahM
  • AbdullahM
So, which answer choices has -1 as the slope?

b and c

which one does your point satisfy?

confused

would it be b?
dan815
  • dan815
why do u say that
anonymous
  • anonymous
Im not sure why. But i think i's right.

its

xD
anonymous
  • anonymous
so how would i solve it?
anonymous
  • anonymous
i know that its b or c
AbdullahM
  • AbdullahM
Good job on eliminating A and D
AbdullahM
  • AbdullahM
The way to find out between B and C is to plug in the point (-3,1)
anonymous
  • anonymous
show me your work so i can understand it a bit better?
anonymous
  • anonymous
i can do another one of these problems after to make sure i understand it
AbdullahM
  • AbdullahM
For example: b. y = -x - 2 b. 1=-(-3) -2 (-3,1) is in the form of (x,y) so we replace the x and y with those values

  • anonymous
alright

1= 3-2
AbdullahM
  • AbdullahM
so that means B is our answer since 1=1
