Write an equation of the line that pass through point P and is parallel to the line with the given equation.

P(3,5); y=4

  • Geometry -

    since y=4 is a horizontal line, you want a horizontal line that passes through P, where y=5.

    Oops Spoiler alert!!

    Sorry, I meant to say perpendicular instead of parallel.

    The actual question is :

    Write an equation of the line that pass through point P and is perpendicular to the line with the given equation.

    P(3,5); y=4

  • Geometry -

    well, what's the problem? A vertical line through P will have x=3. Cmon, guy, put on your thinking cap!
