What is the slope line of the line y equals -2?

Slope = zero. The line is horizontal, parallel to the x-axis.


What is the slope of a line parallel to a line with slope -2?

For two lines to be parallel they must have the same slope. A line parallel to a line with slope -2 would have a slope of -2.


The slope of a line is 2 3 what is the slope of a line that is parallel to it?

if the slope of a line is 2/3, then the slope of a parallel line would be 2/3.



What is the slope of a parallel line?

Parallel lines have the same slope. So if you have a line with slope = 2, for example, and another line is parallel to the first line, it will also have slope = 2.



Find the slope of a parellel to the graph of y equals 4x plus 2?

The graph of [ y = 4x + 2 ] is a straight line with a slope of 4.Any line with a slope of 4 is parallel to that one, and any line parallel to that one has a slope of 4.


Are y equals 2x plus 5 and y equals 2 are parallel?

[ y = 2x + 5 ] has a slope of 2. [ y = 2 ] is a horizontal line ... its slope is zero. Their slopes are different, so they're not parallel.



What is the slope of the line that is parallel to 6x plus 3y equals -9?

6x + 3y = -9 So 3y = -6x - 9 or y = -2x - 3 So the slope of the given line is -2 Therefore, the slope a any parallel line is also -2.


What is the slope of a line parallel to 4x plus 2y equals 5?

Y = -2x + 5 so the slope of this equation, along with the slopes of parallel equations, is -2



The slope of a given line is -2. What is the slope of a line that is parallel to the given line?

It will have the same slope of -2 but the y intercept of the line will be different


What is the slope of a line parallel to the line whose equation is 5x 2y equals 11?

You are missing a - or + sign. The answer is 5/2 though. :)



What is the slope of the line parallel to the line whose slope is 5 over 2?

The slope is 5 over 2, if they're paralell they have the same slope



What is the slope of a line parallel to a line with the slope of negative two thirds?

If it's parallel then it has the same slope, so -2/3. The formula for both of these lines is -2/3x + c.


Is y equals 2x-2 and y equals 2 parallel?

No. The slope of the first is 2 - ie a change in the horizontal direction results in double the change in the vertical direction. The second line is horizontal (slope = 0).


If the slope of a line is -2 What is the slope parallel to it?

-2. Slopes of parallel lines are the same. If the lines are different it is the intercedpt that is different.


What equation represents a line that is parallel to the line reprensented by the equation y equals -2 plus 5?

I assume the question should be y = -2x + 5? The equation of a line that is parallel to that line is any line that begins 7 = -2x ... after the -2x any number may be added or subtracted. Parallel lines have the same slope. In the original equation, the slope is -2.


What is the slope of a parallel line to -3x - 7y equals -8?

Parallel lines have the same slope. -3x - 7y = -8; the slope = -(-3/-7) = -3/7. Thus any line with slope of -3/7 is parallel to -3x - 7y = -8. Exampes: -6x - 14y = 0 -3x - 7x = 2 etc.


What happens when y equals x is changed to y equals x plus 2?

The whole line 'shifts up' by two units, and is parallel to the original line (same slope)


For the line given by y2x find the slope of a line that is Parallel m Perpendicular m?

The line y = 2x If you put it into the form y = mx + b, you have y = 2x + 0 so the slope is 2. Lines parallel to that line have the same slope, 2. Perpendicular lines have slopes that multiply to -1. The slope of a perpendicular line to a line of slope 2 would be -1/2.


Find the slope of a line parallel to the graph of y 4x 2?

y = 4x + 2 Find the slope of a line parallel to the given equation. First, let's take a look at what it means to be parallel. The easiest way to look at it, is to think of railroad tracks. Parallel lines are the same distance apart for EVERY point on the line. This means, parallel lines will NEVER, ever cross. There will never be a point in common with both. Now think about how this will help us with our slope in the equation. Try to answer the following. Our parallel line will have: a) the same slope as the given line OR b) a different slope as the given line That's right, (a). If you're asked to find the equation/slope of a parallel line to a given line, the parallel line will always have the exact SAME slope as your given line! Since our given line y= 4x +2 has a slope of 4, the parallel line to y = 4x +2 will also have a slope of 4. Remember, the general form of a linear equation is y = mx +b, where m = slope and b = y-intercept.
