Can someone show me how to solve this? Someone tried to explain it to meI didn't get it.A line contains the points (3, 4) and (5, 2). Another line graphed in the same coordinate plane contains the points (0, 5) and (2, 1). Based on the slopes of these lines are they parallel, perpendicular or neither?
The slope of any line from point 1 to point 2 is (y2y1)/(x2x1). Therefore the slopes of the two lines you are talkng about are
(2 (4))/(53) = 6/2 = 3
and
(1 (5)/(20)= 6/2 = 3
Thelines are therefore parallel because they have the same slope.
