I am a high school chemistry teacher with nine years experience (all levels of first year chemistry and AP Chemistry). In the past I have also taught anatomy & physiology and biology and before that I worked in the printing industry and as a lab technician. I have two bachelor's degrees in French and history and two master's degrees, one in French and the other in secondary education. I also have nearly all the credits completed for bachelor's degrees in biochemistry and biology, and I am close to completing a doctorate in curriculum and instruction. I hold KY teacher certifications in chemistry, biological science, French, social studies, and English as a Second Language.

I tutored peers throughout college in chemistry and calculus as well as GRE prep. I have been tutoring middle school, high school, and college students for the past several years in reading, math, science, history, French, and ACT and SAT prep.

First you need to figure out the slope of the given line (2x - 4y =5) by putting it in slope intercept form (y = mx + b). subtract 2x from both sides to get -4y = -2x - 5 divide both sides by -4 to get y = (1/2)x + (5/4) So the slope of this line is 1/2. Any lines that are...
