Directions: Please show all of your work for each problem. If applicable, you may find Microsoft Word’s equation editor helpful in creating mathematical expressions in Word. There is a tutorial on using this equation editor in Module 1 Lecture Notes. You also have the option of hand writing your work and scanning it. 1.

3. Write the equation of the line with slope 1 2

− and y-intercept (0, 3).

61°F. What was the hourly rate of temperature change? 5. Determine which two equations represent parallel lines.

(a) y = –7x + 3 (b) y = 7x + 3 (c) y = 1 7

x + 3 (d) y = –7x + 6

6. Determine which two equations represent perpendicular lines.

(a) y = 5 6

x – 5 (b) y = 5x – 5 6

10. A line passing through (6, –10) and (–1, y) is perpendicular to a line with slope 7 2

. Find

the value of y. 11. Use the concept of slope to determine whether the given figure is a right triangle (i.e., does

the triangle contain a right angle?).
