Chapter 3 - Parallel and Perpendicular Lines - 3-8 Slopes of Parallel and Perpendicular Lines - Lesson Check: 1

Answer

Perpendicular

Work Step by Step

Slope of AB: $m=\frac{11-3}{-4--8}$ $m=2$ Slope of CD: $m=\frac{3-2}{-1-1}$ $m=-\frac{1}{2}$ Because $-\frac{1}{2}$ is the negative recipricol of 2, lines AB and CD are perpendicular.
