 Question 162492: are the following equations parallel, perpendicular or nethier to y = 5x + 6 x = 5x + 1 y = -5x - 6 x = -5y + 6Answer by KnightOwlTutor(293)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!x = 5x + 1 I will assume that this is incorrect and what is really being expressed is y=5x+1 . In that case it is parallel to y = 5x + 6 because they have the same slope y = -5x - 6 is neither. x = -5y + 6 This line is perpendicular because the slope is inverse and is -. This is the definition of a perpendicular line .
