In the xy-plane, line k passes through the point (1,1) and the line m passes through the point (1,-1). Are lines k and m perpendicular to each other?

1) lines k and m intersect at the point (1,-1)
2) line k intersects the x axis at the point (1,0)

I'll take E

(1) line k could be x = 1, and line m could be y = -1. However, line m could also be a line that crosses the origin and (1, -1). Insufficient

(2) Simply says line k is a straight line @ x = 1. Insufficient

(1) + (2) Still insufficient

Actually condition (2) is a subset of (1) as far as line K is concerned. So the answer is E as (2) does not provide any additional information.

lol plz wait before posting OA. we don't know the slope of m from both stmts, so its not possible to tell. therefore E.

Guys,

how do I find the distance between two parallel lines if I have their equations in the coordinate plane?
