  • 1. Parallel and Perpendicular Lines
  • 2.
    • If two non-vertical lines in the same plane have the same slope, then the lines are parallel .
    • If two non-vertical lines in the same plane are parallel , then they have the same slope.
    • Two horizontal lines in the same plane are parallel ; two vertical lines in the same plane are parallel .
    Parallel Lines: Concept
  • 3. SOLUTION EXAMPLE 1 Write an equation of a parallel line Write an equation of the line that passes through (–3, –5) and is parallel to the line y = 3 x – 1. STEP 1 Identify the slope. The graph of the given equation has a slope of 3. So, the parallel line through (–3, –5) has a slope of 3. STEP 2 Find the y - intercept. Use the slope and the given point. y = m x + b Write slope-intercept form .
  • 4. EXAMPLE 1 Write an equation of a parallel line y = 3 x + b – 5 = 3 ( –3 ) + b 4 = b Substitute 3 for m . Substitute  3 for x , and  5 for y . Solve for b . STEP 3 Write an equation. Use y = mx + b . y = 3 x + 4 Substitute 3 for m and 4 for b . Using the point (–3, –5)

    y = –x + 9 ANSWER
  • 6. Perpendicular Lines
  • 7.
    • If two non-vertical lines in the same plane have slopes that are negative reciprocals, then the lines are perpendicular .
    • If two non-vertical lines in the same plane are perpendicular , then their slopes are negative reciprocals.
    • A horizontal line and a vertical line in the same plane are perpendicular .
    Perpendicular Lines: Concept
  • 8. EXAMPLE 2 Determine whether lines are parallel or perpendicular Determine which lines, if any, are parallel or perpendicular. Line a : y = 5 x – 3 Line b : x + 5 y = 2 Line c : –10 y – 2 x = 0 SOLUTION Find the slopes of the lines .
    • Line a : The equation is in slope-intercept form .
    • The slope is 5.
