Using the appropriate equations and points from the table below find equations for lines parallel or perpendicular to it going through specified points. Simplify your equations into slope-intercept form.
Write the equation of a line parallel to the given line but passing through the given point. |
Write the equation of a line perpendicular to the given line but passing through the given point. |
Y = -1/2x + 1; (4,2) Y = -3x – 6; (-1,5)
- Discuss
the steps necessary to carry out each activity. Describe briefly
what each line looks like in relation to the original given line.
Answer these two questions briefly in your own words:
What does it mean for one line to be parallel to another?
What does it mean for one line to be perpendicular to another?
Incorporate the following five math vocabulary words into your discussion. Use bold font to emphasize the words in your writing (Do not write definitions for the words; use them appropriately in sentences describing your math work.):
