    Question 1-5:
    slope is tangens of angle betwen x-axis and line.
    Equation is:

    tan(alpha)=(y2-y1)/(x2-x1)

    Firs 5 question is O.K

  • Algebra/Math - ,

    Sorry. Answer for question 5 is not correct.
    2x+3y=4 , 3y=-2x+4 (Divided with 3)
    y=(-2/3)x+4/3 Slope (-2/3)

    3x+2y=6 , 2y=-3x+6 (Divided with 2)
    y=(-3/2)x+3 Slope(-3/2)

  • Algebra/Math - ,

    Question 6
    (1/2)x+2y=1 , 2y=(-1/2)x+1
    (Divided with 2) y=(-1/4)x+1/2
    Slope(-1/4)

    4x-y=3 , y=4x-3 (Slope 4)

    Perpendicular

    Question 7
    6x-9y=4 , -9y=-6x*4 (Divided with -9)
    y=(-6/-9)x-4/9
    y=(2/3)x-4/9 Slope (2/3)

    (2/3)x-y=11 , y=(2/3)x-11 Slope (2/3)

    Parallel

    Best way to check that is that you drive this lines in grid.Is enough 2 points for any lines.
    For question 5 draw lines
    (-2/3)x+4/3 and y=(-3/2)x+3
    For question 6 draw lines
    (-1/4)x+1/2 and y=4x-3
    For question 7 draw lines
    (2/3)x-4/9 and (2/3)x-11

    Question 8
    y-7=0 y=7
    For all values of x y=7
    That is line parallel with x-axis

    3x=5 (divided with 3)
    x=5/3
    For all values of y x=5/3
    That is line p0arallel with y-axis

    3x(5-(10-8)
