1. Answer :
If two lines are parallel, then their slopes are equal.
3k + 2 = 7
Subtract 2 from each side.
3k = 5
Divide each side by 5.
k = 5/3
2. Answer :
3x + 2y - 8 = 0
(5k + 3)x + 2y + 1 = 0
If the two lines are parallel, then their general forms of equations will differ only in the constant term and they will have the same coefficients of x and y.
To find the value of k, equate the coefficients of x.
5k + 3 = 3
Subtract 3 from each side.
5k = 0
Divide each side by 5.
k = 0
3. Answer :
Because the required line is parallel to 2x - y + 7 = 0, the equation of the required line and the equation of the given line 2x - y + 7 = 0 will differ only in the constant term.
Then, the equation of the required line is
2x - y + k = 0 -----(1)
The required line is passing through (2, 3).
Substitute x = 2 and y = 3 in (1).
2(2) - 3 + k = 0
4 - 3 + k = 0
1 + k = 0
k = - 1
So, the equation of the required line is
(1)-----> 2x -y - 1 = 0
4. Answer :
3x + 2y - 7 = 0
y = -1.5x + 4
In the equations of the given two lines, the equation of the second line is not in general form.
Let us write the equation of the second line in general form.
y = -1.5x + 4
1.5x + y - 4 = 0
Multiply by 2 on both sides,
3x + 2y - 8 = 0
Now, let us compare the equations of two lines,
3x + 2y - 7 = 0
3x + 2y - 8 = 0
The above two equations differ only in the constant term.
So, the equations of the given two lines are parallel.
5. Answer :
5x + 7y - 1 = 0
10x + 14y + 5 = 0
In the equation of the second line 10x + 14y + 5 = 0, the coefficients of x and y have the common divisor 2.
So, divide the second equation by 2
(10x/2) + (14y/2) + (5/2) = (0/2)
5x + 7y + 2.5 = 0
Now, let us compare the equations of two lines,
5x + 7y - 1 = 0
5x + 7y + 2.5 = 0
The above two equations differ only in the constant term.
So, the equations of the given two lines are parallel.
6. Answer :
From the given figure,
∠F and ∠H are vertically opposite angles and they are equal.
Then, ∠H = ∠F -------> ∠H = 65°
∠H and ∠D are corresponding angles and they are equal.
Then, ∠D = ∠H -------> ∠D = 65°
∠D and ∠B are vertically opposite angles and they are equal.
Then, ∠B = ∠D -------> ∠B = 65°
∠F and ∠E are together form a straight angle.
Then, we have
∠F + ∠E = 180°
Plug ∠F = 65°
∠F + ∠E = 180°
65° + ∠E = 180°
∠E = 115°
∠E and ∠G are vertically opposite angles and they are equal.
Then, ∠G = ∠E -------> ∠G = 115°
∠G and ∠C are corresponding angles and they are equal.
Then, ∠C = ∠G -------> ∠C = 115°
∠C and ∠A are vertically opposite angles and they are equal.
Then, ∠A = ∠C -------> ∠A = 115°
Therefore,
∠A = ∠C = ∠E = ∠G = 115°
∠B = ∠D = ∠F = ∠H = 65°
7. Answer :
From the given figure,
∠(2x + 20)° and ∠(3x - 10)° are corresponding angles.
So, they are equal.
Then, we have
(2x + 20)° = ∠(3x - 10)°
2x + 20 = 3x - 10
Subtract 2x from each side.
20 = x - 10
Add 10 to each side.
30 = x
8. Answer :
From the given figure, ∠(3x + 20)° and ∠2x° are consecutive interior angles.
So, they are supplementary.
Then, we have
(3x + 20)° + 2x° = 180°
3x + 20 + 2x = 180
Simplify.
5x + 20 = 180
Subtract 20 from each side.
5x = 160
Divide each side by 8.
x = 32
