The equation of line L, is y=5x+1 The equation of line L squared, is 2y-10x+3=0 Show rhat thse two lines are parallel.

If they are parallel, they will have the same slope, m

   arrange the equations in the form   y = mx+b   to see if the 'm' s   are equal

    one  is in this form already    m = 5

 

2y-10x+3 = 0

2y= 10x-3

y = 5x - 3/2       Yep m= 5 on this one too......cheeky
