slope is tangens of angle betwen x-axis and line.

Equation is:

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

Firs 5 question is O.K

**Bosnian**, Sunday, October 17, 2010 at 8:19pmSorry. 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)

**Bosnian**, Sunday, October 17, 2010 at 8:30pmQuestion 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

**Bosnian**, Sunday, October 17, 2010 at 8:35pmQuestion 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

**Bosnian**, Sunday, October 17, 2010 at 8:44pmBest 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

**Bosnian**, Sunday, October 17, 2010 at 8:50pmQuestion 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
