Line 1 y= -5/2x
Line 2 y= -5/2x +8
Which statement about the graph of the line is true

1 Answer

2

Answer:

They have the same slope

Step-by-step explanation:

Given

y = -\frac{5}{2}x

y = -\frac{5}{2}x + 8

Required

Determine the true statement about both lines

An equation has a general format of:

y = mx + b

Where

m = slope

By comparing this to the equations of both lines, we have that:

For line 1:

m = -\frac{5}{2}

For line 2:

m = -\frac{5}{2}

Compare the slopes of both lines, we have that:

m = m = -\frac{5}{2}

Hence, we can conclude that both lines have the same slope
