The line y=2, and all lines parallel to the x axis, have a slope of 0. The formula for this line in particular can be expressed as y=0x +2.
Slope = zero. The line is horizontal, parallel to the x-axis.
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.
if the slope of a line is 2/3, then the slope of a parallel line would be 2/3.
It will have the same slope which is 2
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.
2. Parallel lines have the same slope.
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.
[ 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.
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.
Y = -2x + 5 so the slope of this equation, along with the slopes of parallel equations, is -2
Minus one half, (-1/2).
It will have the same slope of -2 but the y intercept of the line will be different
You are missing a - or + sign. The answer is 5/2 though. :)
The slope is 5 over 2, if they're paralell they have the same slope
If it's parallel then it has the same slope, so -2/3. The formula for both of these lines is -2/3x + c.
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).
-2. Slopes of parallel lines are the same. If the lines are different it is the intercedpt that is different.
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.
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.
The whole line 'shifts up' by two units, and is parallel to the original line (same slope)
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.
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.
