so you know that parallel lines have the same gradients right?
Zale101
  • Zale101
Parallel lines have the same slope of the equation its parallel to. What is the slope in this equation?
vera_ewing
  • vera_ewing
-6?
Zale101
  • Zale101
Nope.

You want to simplify the equation and try and write it in gradient point form to make it easier

y=3 is a horizontal line.|dw:1442892124277:dw|

Wait what would the standard form of the equation be?
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
Two or more lines are said to be parallel when they have the same slope. These lines cannot be the same or equal, which gives them a property of non-intersecting lines.

Recall that a slope is rise/run|dw:1442892165368:dw|
Zale101
  • Zale101
Horizontal lines do not rise but do run. That makes it's slope zero.

Ok so what's the standard form of the equation? How do I set it up??
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
did you get the equation of the second line?
Zale101
  • Zale101
Use the point slope formula and plug in point b with the slope zero and tell me what you'll get.
vera_ewing
  • vera_ewing
Would it be y+1=0?
Zale101
  • Zale101
Correct.
vera_ewing
  • vera_ewing
Ah, thanks!
Zale101
  • Zale101
so y=-1
Zale101
  • Zale101
|dw:1442892456423:dw|
Zale101
  • Zale101
So, we know that we have a horizontal line y=3, a line that is parallel to it has to be a horizontal line.
nincompoop
  • nincompoop
maybe we can show the bigger picture
