Parallel lines are straight lines that extend to infinity without touching at any point. Perpendicular lines cross each other at a 90-degree angle. Both sets of lines are important for many geometric proofs, so it is important to recognize them graphically and algebraically. You must know the structure of a straight-line equation before you can write equations for parallel or perpendicular.
Example. State the equation of a line that is parallel to. To be parallel, two lines must have the same gradient. The gradient of is 3. Any line with a gradient of 3 will be parallel to.
In this Warm up I intend for the students to reflect on strategies to write the equation of a line parallel to or perpendicular to a given line. The first two problems are relatively open. Problems 3 and 4 require the parallel or perpendicular line to go through a given point. I plan for this warm up to take 10 minutes.Read More

Write the equation for a line parallel to passing through the point. Possible Answers: Correct answer: Explanation: In order to approach this problem, we need to be familiar with the slope-intercept equation of a line, where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept. The line that our line is supposed to be parallel to is. Lines that are parallel have the same slope, m, so the slope of our new.Read More
To write an equation for a line, we must know two points on the line, or we must know the direction of the line and at least one point through which the line passes. In two dimensions, we use the concept of slope to describe the orientation, or direction, of a line. In three dimensions, we describe the direction of a line using a vector parallel to the line. In this section, we examine how to.Read More
From the equation of the line in point-slope form; And of course, you can use different methods for each line. When they are vertical Recall that if a line is vertical it has no defined slope. (See Slope of a line). Vertical lines are parallel by definition. A line is vertical if the x-coordinates of two points on the line are the same. Example 1. Are two lines parallel? Fig 1. Are these lines.Read More
Remember, parallel lines have the same slope. If you can find the slope of that parallel line, you'll have the slope of your line! In this tutorial, you'll see how to find the slope of your line and use that slope, along with the given point, to write an equation for the line in slope-intercept form. Take a look!Read More
This Equations of Parallel Lines: Exploring Equations Interactive is suitable for 9th - 11th Grade. Same slope, different point — what's the same and what's different about an equation? Young mathematicians use an interactive to position a line parallel to a given line and through a given point. They observe that the equation will have the same slope but different y-intercept.Read More
