    Cartesian slope rationality

    If a line coincides with at least two vertices on an infinite Cartesian grid, its slope is rational. If a line coincides with only one vertex on an infinite Cartesian grid, its slope is irrational. If a line coincides with no vertices on an infinite Cartesian grid, its slope is either...

    Finding solution of slopes

    Hi, I'm trying to find the solution of these three equation. I have on my calculator (I'm a newbie on calculators), my answers are in coordinates. 1). Y = -7.14x + 13.52 ANS (1.91,.15) Y=12.23x-19.99 2). 1.1x-2.9y = 4.7. ANS (20.27,5.27) 15.95y = 6.05x -38.6 3). 0.3x-y = 16.1. ANS (-9,-19)...

    Can You Calculate Angles Based On The Product Of Slopes?

    When two lines intersect, four angles adding up to 360 degrees are formed. If the two lines have slopes that multiply to -1 (perpendicular lines), all four angles are 90 degrees. If the lines are not perpendicular, there will be two pairs of vertical angles, so for example there could be two...

    Help needed, please!

    Hello, I have a question the lines -4x +5y=-10 and 5x+ky=12 are perpendicular. What is the value k? I already know that the value of k is 4, but I can't come up with how to get it... The slope of a second line is reciprocal of first line which is -5/4... Please, help!!

    Slopes and the first derivative

    Hi everyone, this is my first post here. I am turning on the rusty math engine in my brain for the first time in a few years after graduating from college. I am fine combing through my econometrics textbook and came upon a graph where y = ln(x). At point (1,0), the textbook states that y = x - 1...

    tangent lines and slopes

    y²=x³+?x+? ? and ? are real constants. Where do these curves have well defined tangent lines and slopes? Does this depend on the choice of ? and ?? So this basically equals y = ?x³+???x+?? I'm a little confused about how to approach this because I thought that root functions were undefined?
