Read the following instructions in order to complete this discussion, and review the example of how to complete the math required for this assignment:

  • Given an equation of a line, find equations for lines parallel or perpendicular to it going through specified points. Find the appropriate equations and points from the table below. Simplify your equations into slope-intercept form.
My first name starts with:    

A

Write the equation of a line parallel to the given line but passing through the given point.

Y= ½ x + 3;(-2,1)

Write the equation of a line perpendicular to the given line but passing through the given point.

Y= ¾ x + -1; (4,0)


  • 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.): 

    • Origin 
    • Ordered pair 
    • X- or y-intercept 
    • Slope 
    • Reciprocal
Your initial post should be 150-250 words in length.
