Write an equation for the line that is parallel to the given line and passes through the given point.

y=3x+4;(6,8)
A. y=3x-10
B. y=3x+6
C. y=-3x+6
D. y=-1/3x-6

Tell whether the lines for each pair of equations are parallel, perpendicular, or neither.
y=-3x+7
-2x+6y=3
A. Parallel
B. Perpendicular
C. Neither

1. B
2.A

  1. To check #1
    You say B which is y=3x+6
    if x = 6
    y = 3(6) + 6 = 18+6 = 24
    NO!
    See, you can check without asking me.

    y = 18+b
    y = 8
    8 = 18+b
    b = -10
    so the RIGHT answer is
    y = 3x -10
    which is A

    now
    slope of first = -3
    second is
    6y = 2x + 3 , slope = +1/3
    second slope = -1/first slope
    so
    PERPENDICULAR
