Find the value of k so that the two given lines are parallel.

-5x+kx=4

2y-9x=11

Arrange in y = mx+ b form m is the slope parallel slopes are =

2y-9x = 11

y = 9/2 x + 11/2

-5y + kx = 4 ( I assume you mis typed this one)

5y = kx - 4

y = k/5 x - 4/5 k/5 has to equal 9/2

k/5 = 9/2 now you can solve for 'k'
