How To: Find the equation of a perpendicular & parallel line

Find the equation of a perpendicular & parallel line

This video shows how to find the equation of the line perpendicular and parallel to a given line. The video starts off with an example, given the lines and the slopes (m). When 2 lines are parallel to each other, they have the same slope. When 2 lines are perpendicular to each other, the slopes multiplied together will give -1. Knowing these rules, the tutorial maker provides an example with numbers. He then leads each step of the process. Each step is written out in either black, red, blue or green depending on what it represents. If you follow this video, you will be able to find the equation of the line perpendicular to a given line, or parallel to a given line.
