If it is parallel, it never intersects. x=8 is a vertical line, so you are looking for another vertical line. (It will be equal to x.)

Hi :o
jennyrlz
  • jennyrlz
ok so if a line is parallel. They will never inersect or touch
anonymous
  • anonymous
B. x = 7
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah
jennyrlz
  • jennyrlz
It is b :)
jennyrlz
  • jennyrlz
but let me show why :P

  • anonymous
Please :P

jennyrlz
  • jennyrlz
since it is only x= we know it is a verical line
jennyrlz
  • jennyrlz
meaning that the answer has to be paralel to x=; in other words it has to be along the same axis (X)
jennyrlz
  • jennyrlz
make sense o3o?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Thank you I understand how to figure that out but there's a similar question I wanna ask that's mind Boggling!
jennyrlz
  • jennyrlz
ask it :)

  • jennyrlz
ill see what i can do :3

Select the equation of the line that passes through the point (3, 5) and is perpendicular to the line x = 4. y = 5 x = 5 y = 4 x = 3
jennyrlz
  • jennyrlz
ok sec let me work it out xD
anonymous
  • anonymous
Lol Take you're time :P
jennyrlz
  • jennyrlz
ok simple :)
jennyrlz
  • jennyrlz
do you know what perpendicular means?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I'm not sure I remember :/
jennyrlz
  • jennyrlz
ok it basically means they interest' for examply the xy plain is made up of two perindicular lines

Oh like They intersect though?
jennyrlz
  • jennyrlz
yup
jennyrlz
  • jennyrlz
|dw:1437426907162:dw| so the line you are looking for has to go through point 3,5 and be perpendicular to x=4
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah
jennyrlz
  • jennyrlz
so to be perpendicular (and intersect) it needs to be on the y axis :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Lemme guess y=4
jennyrlz
  • jennyrlz
|dw:1437427013148:dw| close
jennyrlz
  • jennyrlz
it is y=5 because the line needs to go through 3,5
jennyrlz
  • jennyrlz
if something does not make sense, let me know :)

Thank's sooo much @jennyrlz you helped me a lot! But mind if I ask you one question I want to know If my answer is correct :P
jennyrlz
  • jennyrlz
for questions like this, drawing it out makes it 10x easier xD
jennyrlz
  • jennyrlz
sure :)

Select the coordinates of two points on the line y = −2. (2, −2) and (−2, 2) (−2, −2) and (−2, 0) (2, −2) and (0, −2) (−2, 2) and (−2, −2)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Sketchy but I think it's maybe B.
jennyrlz
  • jennyrlz
ok so we know it is on the y axis
jennyrlz
  • jennyrlz
|dw:1437427241931:dw|
jennyrlz
  • jennyrlz
(x,y) it cant be B, because b is saying that (-2,0) is a point
jennyrlz
  • jennyrlz
the correct answer is C
jennyrlz
  • jennyrlz
i am telling you, drawing makes it so much easier xD
anonymous
  • anonymous
Thank you very much! you helped me a lot today!
jennyrlz
  • jennyrlz
No problem :)
jennyrlz
  • jennyrlz
fan me, if you want help another day xD
jennyrlz
  • jennyrlz
i am barley on :P
jennyrlz
  • jennyrlz
just wondering what math is this for?
