### Parallel and Perpendicular

Today we learned what Parallel and Perpindicular lines are, how they are graphed, how to graph them given an equation for a line, and how to write an equation for a perpindicular line when given only the first line.

### Graphing Linear Equations

We learned how to use grapmatica and graphing calculators to graph linear equations

### The Effect Of Changing The Coefficent Of X In The Equation y=x

Today in class we learnt about what happens when you change the coefficent of x in the equation: y=x. Some important equations to learn are:
1. y=mx+b
2. y-y=m(x-x)
3. Ax+By+C= 0 ; m= -A/B; b= -c/B; Ax+By=C

I will later post the video since it wasn't working at this time.
