a)Prove that 4x-y-1=0 is parallel to y=4x-5

b)Show that the points A(3,1), B(5,2) and C(11,5) are collinear

c)Show that the lines y=2x-4 and x+2y-10=0 are perpendicular to one other.

d) Prove that triangle ABC is isoscles given A(3,1), B(-3,7) and C(-1,3)

Thank you!

**Reiny**, Saturday, September 17, 2011 at 8:46ama) change the first into the form y = mx + b

4x - y - 1 = 0

-y = -4x + 1

y = 4x - 1

the value of m is the same for both equations, so they are parallel

b) find the slope between 2 different line segments.

If the slope is the same, then they are collinear.

c) slope of first is 2

After changing the second to the form y = mx + b, the value of m should be -1/2 to be perpendicular.

d) find the length of the 3 sides using your distance formula

Two of the lines should be the same
