## 6.2 Notes

Unit 6 ? Linear Functions ? Slopes of Parallel & Perpendicular Lines Example 1 Plot points A(-4, 0) and B(-2, 4) and connect them. Plot points C(0, -2) and D(3, 4) and connect them. a) Calculate the slope of each line segment. b) What do you notice about the lines on the graph? Example 2 Plot points A(1, 4) and B(-2, 3) and connect them. Plot points C(-2, 5) and D(0, -1) and connect them. a) Calculate the slope of each line segment. b) What do you notice about the lines on the graph? Parallel lines have ________________ slope. Perpendicular lines have slopes that are the ______________________ of each other. When you multiply the slopes of perpendicular lines together, the product will be ______.
