Unformatted text preview: to "picture" the rate of change of a linear function geometrically—you can tell something about the rate of change of the function just by looking at the graph. *** Other geometric connections you explored include the relationships between the slopes of parallel lines and the slopes of perpendicular lines. Parallel lines have the same slant and, therefore, the same slope values. Perpendicular lines intersect to form 90º angles, so their slopes have opposite signs and reciprocal values. As you continue your study of linear functions, you will need to remember the relationship between constant rate of change and slope of a line....
