Presentation Transcript

Objectives:1. Find the slope of the line through 2 points.2. Find the slope of a line parallel to a given line.3. Find the slope of a line perpendicular to a given line.4. Write the equation of a line.

Two nonvertical lines are parallel ifftheir slopes are equal.Note: Vertical lines will be parallel.

Two nonvertical lines are perpendicular ifftheir slopes are opposite reciprocals.Note: A horizontal line and a vertical line are perpendicular.

There are two forms for an equation of a line with which you should be familiar.Slope-intercept form:Point-slope form:
Example: Write an equation in point-slope form for the line through the point (3, -5) with a slope of .

Example: Write an equation, in slope-intercept form, for the line through the point (12, 5) that will be perpendicular to the line .

Example: Write an equation, in slope-intercept form, for the line through the points (2, -5) and (4, 2).
