Parallel and Perpendicular Lines: 1. Write the equation of the line which passes through (5, –2) and is parallel to x = 4. 2. Write the equation of the line which passes through (2, 1) and is perpendicular to x = –2. 3. Write the equation of the line which passes through (–4, 2) and is parallel to y = –x + 6 in slope-intercept form. 4. Write the equation of the line which passes through (2, –3) and is perpendicular to y = 4x + 7 in standard form. 5. Using complete sentences, describe one example of a place in your everyday life of parallel lines and one example of perpendicular lines. You may also provide a digital image or self-created picture.

y+2 = 4(x-5) y+2 = 4x - 20 you can make it look better if you wish

Fine ill do 1 more 2. Write the equation of the line which passes through (2, 1) and is perpendicular to x = –2 since its perpendicular m1 = -1/m2

gradient = 1/2 using formula y-1 = 1/2(x-2) 2y - 2 = x-2 2y-x=0

well perpedicular lines can be seen -When a pole makes 90 degrees with the floor. -The corners of a piece of paper -The edge of a step You can choose one :) but make the sentence more complicated :)

parallel lines can be found in -train tracks when they are going in a straight line - a very very long ruler -The sides of a straight road Choose one if you wish but make sentence more complicated :)
