Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2when the lines are parallel how are the slopes related? when the lines are perpendicular how are the slopes related?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you have the equation of a line rearrange and determine the slope

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I forgot everything about the parallel and perpendicular relations because I learned this in algebra but it wasn't taught in algebra 2 :(

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know the basics. I know that the slope stays the same but the y intercept is different.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no exactly for perpendicular lines the product of the slopes is 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so back to the question you have the equation of the line in standard form you can rearrange and find the slope Part A parallel lines have the same slope and you have a point on that line find the equation of the parallel line to the one given Part B you can find the slope of the line perpendicular to the one given then using the given point and (x, y) you can find the equation of the line perpendicular to the original one given

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And what do you mean by the product of the slope is 1 for perpendicular lines?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1440208587394:dw Okay so I got the point slope form, but how would i change the equation to make it parallel?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i am not up to date with the problem, but for a line to be paralel the slope must be the same

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0aslo you would have to isolate the varioble, and simplify
