Using the appropriate equations and points from the table below find equations for lines parallel or perpendicular to it going through specified points. Simplify your equations into slope-intercept form.

Write the equation of a line parallel to the given line but passing through the given point.

Write the equation of a line perpendicular to the given line but passing through the given point.

                          Y = -1/2x + 1; (4,2)                                              Y = -3x – 6; (-1,5)


  • Discuss the steps necessary to carry out each activity. Describe briefly what each line looks like in relation to the original given line.
  • Answer these two questions briefly in your own words: 

    • What does it mean for one line to be parallel to another? 

    • What does it mean for one line to be perpendicular to another?

  • Incorporate the following five math vocabulary words into your discussion. Use bold font to emphasize the words in your writing (Do not write definitions for the words; use them appropriately in sentences describing your math work.): 

    • Origin 

    • Ordered pair 

    • X- or y-intercept 

    • Slope 

    • Reciprocal
