Example Question #1 : Prove Slope Criteria For Parallel And Perpendicular Lines: Ccss.Math.Content.Hsg Gpe.B.5

In slope intercept form, find the equation of the line parallel to  and goes through the point .

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

First step is to recall slope intercept form.

Where  is the slope, and  is a point on the line.

Since we want a line that is parallel, our slope () is going to be the same as the original equation.

So 

Then we substitute -7 for  and 10 for 

After plugging them in, we get.

Now we solve for 

 

 

Example Question #2 : Prove Slope Criteria For Parallel And Perpendicular Lines: Ccss.Math.Content.Hsg Gpe.B.5

In slope intercept form, find the equation of the line parallel to  and goes through the point .

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

First step is to recall slope intercept form.

Where  is the slope, and  is a point on the line.

Since we want a line that is parallel, our slope () is going to be the same as the original equation.

So 

Then we substitute 7 for  and 5 for 

After plugging them in, we get.

Now we solve for 

Example Question #3 : Prove Slope Criteria For Parallel And Perpendicular Lines: Ccss.Math.Content.Hsg Gpe.B.5

In slope intercept form, find the equation of the line perpendicular to  and goes through the point 

 

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

First step is to recall slope intercept form.

Where  is the slope, and  is a point on the line.

Since we want a line that is perpendicular, our slope () is going to be the negative reciprocal of the original equation.

So 

Then we substitute -10 for  and 10 for 

After plugging them in, we get.

Now we solve for 

 

 

Example Question #4 : Prove Slope Criteria For Parallel And Perpendicular Lines: Ccss.Math.Content.Hsg Gpe.B.5

In slope intercept form, find the equation of the line perpendicular to  and goes through the point .

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

First step is to recall slope intercept form.

Where  is the slope, and  is a point on the line.

Since we want a line that is perpendicular, our slope () is going to be the negative reciprocal of the original equation.

So 

Then we substitute 1 for  and -2 for 

After plugging them in, we get.

Now we solve for
