**Parallel and Perpendicular**

- Read the following instructions in order to complete this discussion, and review the example of how to complete the math required for this assignment:
- Given an equation of a line, find equations for lines parallel or perpendicular to it going through specified points. Find the appropriate equations and points from the table below. Simplify your equations into slope-intercept form.
- Use your assigned number to complete.

**(A) Write the equation of a line parallel to the given line and passing through the given point.**

** **y = -2x – 4; (1, 3)

**(B) Write the equation of a line perpendicular to the given line and passing through the given point.**

** **y = -2x – 4; (1, 3)

- 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
