About More one Slope:

We can graph a line very quickly by placing the equation in slope-intercept form: y = mx + b. This allows us to plot one point, the y-intercept and any addition points using the slope, given as m. Using slope, we can also determine if two lines are parallel, perpendicular, or neither.

Test Objectives:

•Demonstrate the ability to graph a line using one point and the slope

•Demonstrate the ability to determine if two lines are parallel

•Demonstrate the ability to determine if two lines are perpendicular

#4:

Solution:

a) These lines are perpendicular

$$8x + 3y = 16 : y = -\frac{8}{3}x + \frac{16}{3}$$ $$3x - 8y = 32 : y = \frac{3}{8}x - 4$$ $$-\frac{8}{3} \cdot \frac{3}{8} = -1$$

#5:

Solution:

a) These lines are neither parallel nor perpendicular

$$6x + 7y = 14 : y = -\frac{6}{7}x + 2$$ $$9x - 2y = -8 : y = \frac{9}{2}x + 4$$ $$-\frac{6}{7} \cdot \frac{9}{2} \ne -1 : -\frac{6}{7} \ne \frac{9}{2}$$
