lynfran you are typing up a novel

when two lines are parallel the have the same gradient.... so first step here it to find the gradient of (-1,3) and (2,-7)|dw:1436210401904:dw| now we would have an equation like this|dw:1436210720108:dw|

thank you so much<3

my answer choiices are: Yes, both are vertical Yes, both lines have the same slope No, both have positive slopes that are not equal No, both have negative slopes that are not equal.

8. LynFran

|dw:1436211244404:dw|so, for the two equations the slope is different..which mean they are not parallel.

9. LynFran

so which option is it @mickey1513

Both have positive slopes that are not equal?

11. anonymous

oh wait negative!!

12. LynFran

they both have negative slopes that are not equal

thank you sooo much(: i get it now.
