You are missing a - or + sign. The answer is 5/2 though. :)
The slope is 5. Parallel lines always have the same slope.
When a straight line equation is parallel to another equation the slope remains the same but the y intercept changes
1, it will have the same slope but the y intercept will be different.
Your answer can vary as long as it has a slope of 1. So it could be y=x+(insert number here)
y = 0That's the equation of the x-axis.Its slope is zero.
2. Parallel lines have the same slope.
the slope will be positive 1.5x the whole equation is y=4.5+1.5x
The slope would be 3/4
If you mean: y = 0.5x-10 then an equation parallel to it will have the same slope of 0.5 but a y intercept different to -10
It is also zero as parallel lines have the same slope
x = -3 represents a vertical line whose slope is undefined.
a like that is parallel to the line y - 5x = 10 will have the same slope as y - 5x = 10. the slope of a line is determined by the standard form of a linear equation y = mx + b where m is the slope. we need to get our equation to look like the standard form. y - 5x = 10 y = 10 + 5x (adding 5x to both sides) comparing this to our standard form y = mx + b the number in front of the x is our slope. in this particular equation m = 5 the slope of a like parallel to this line will be the same, a slope of 5
Somehow, sadly, the list of allowed choices that you carefully included with your questionhas been lost.The equation in the question can be re-arranged and written in slope-intercept form asy = -5/2 x + 5This tells us that the graph of the equation has a slope of -5/2 and a y-intercept of 5.Any line with the same slope and a different intercept is parallel to this one. So the equationof a parallel line isy = -5/2 + (any number except 5)
ax + by = cThe graph if that equation is a straight line whose slope is (-a/b)and whose y-intercept is (c/b).
1) Solve the given equation for "y". The resulting equation will be in slope-intercept form, so you can immediately read off its slope. 2) Any line parallel to that line will have the same slope.
