Use the ordered pairs and the slope formula to find the slopes of MJ and KL. MJ is parallel to KL because they have the same slope. JK is parallel to ML because they are both horizontal. Since opposite sides are parallel, JKLM is a parallelogram.

These lines are perpendicular. The slope of the line described by y – 6 = 5(x + 4) is 5. The slope of the line described by y= is 5 and y = – 4 are opposite reciprocals, so these lines are perpendicular. y – 6 = 5(x + 4) Holt Algebra 1 5 -8 Slopes of Parallel and Perpendicular Lines Page 34 Example 5: Geometry Application Show that ABC is a right triangle. If ABC is a right triangle, AB will be perpendicular to AC. slope of AB is perpendicular to AC because Therefore, ABC is a right triangle because it contains a right angle.
