Step 2. By Definition the slope m is where m=-1/4 since lines will be parallel Step 3. Let x1=k and y1=-10 for (k,-10) and x2=5 and y2=-6 for (5,-6) Step 4. Substitute values in Step 3 into Step 4 Now multiply 4(5-k) to get rid of diameters. Add k-16 to both sides to get k I hope the above steps were helpful.
