Parallel lines
Lines in the same
plane that do not
intersect are called
parallel lines.
Parallel lines have
the same slope.

Practice. Write the equation of a parallel line.
Write the equation of a line parallel to the line shown
below and passing through point (1, 2)
(1, 2)
M=2/3 and b is -1 so
-2
Y-intercept
Step 2: Substitute into y = mx + b
2  1 (1 )  b
-3
1 b
M =-2 = 2
-3 3 The slope is 2/3, the y-intercept is 1,
so the equation of the parallel line is
y=2/3x+1

Perpendicular Lines
Opposite reciprocals????
Lines that intersect at
right angles are
called
perpendicular lines.
The slopes of these
lines are opposite
reciprocals.

Flip the slope over and change the sign
to the opposite. If the original slope is
positive, the new one will be negative.
If the original is negative, the new one
will be positive.
