Finding Perpendicular and Parralel Lines

Finding Perpendicular and Parralel Lines

Author: Cecil McIntosh

The objective of this lesson, is to show the user how to write the linear equation for a parrallel and perpendicular line respective to another line. the user should be able to spot perpendicular or parrallel lines simply by looking at two equations, and find the equation for the second line if given a point on that line.

I take the user through a few examples of what perpendicular and parrallel linear equations are, and how to spot them. then i solve some problems in which one linear equation is given, along with a point on another line, and we are required to find the second lines equation.
