Parallel Lines and Transversals

Directions: Using the whole numbers 1 through 9 no more than one time each, fill in the boxes so that 2 of the lines are parallel and the third line is a transversal.



What do we know about the slopes of parallel lines and transversals?



There are multiple answers but two of the lines must be parallel (have the same slope) and the third must have a different slope.  One solution is 6x + 3y = 9, 4x + 2y = 8, x + 7y = 5
