Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you know that parallel lines have the same gradients right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Two 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 nonintersecting lines.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Recall that a slope is rise/rundw:1442892165368:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Horizontal lines do not rise but do run. That makes it's slope zero.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok so what's the standard form of the equation? How do I set it up??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Use the point slope formula and plug in point b with the slope zero and tell me what you'll get.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So, we know that we have a horizontal line y=3, a line that is parallel to it has to be a horizontal line.
