Parallel and Perpendicular

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

f your assigned number is: Write the equation of a line parallel to the given line and passing through the given point. Write the equation of a line perpendicular to the given line and passing through the given point.
  • 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.
  • Use your assigned number to complete.
    • 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
y = -2x – 4; (1, 3) y = -2x – 4; (1, 3)
