Are these lines parallel, or perpendicular

2x+4y=4
4x-2y=1

I think they are niether

  • algebra -

    slope of first = -1/2
    slope of second = 2

    Do you want to re-evaluate your decision ?

  • algebra -

    so are the perpendicular?

  • algebra -

    yes, the slopes are negative reciprocals of each other
