At what angle do lines y = Kx + B and y = Bx + K intersect ?

(1) B + K = 1
(2) BK = 0

(C) 2008 GMAT Club - m20#17

[Reveal] Spoiler:
1: B + k = 1 N.S : 1/2,1/2, 0/1 etc.
2. BK = 0 N.S : 1/0, 0/1, etc.
Angle between two lines with slopes m1 and m2 is :
tan(q) = (m1-m2)/(1+m1.m2)
Now if m1m2 = 0 and m1+m2 = 0 this implies: 1,0 or 0,1
arctan(1) = 45 and arctan(-1)=-45. Eventhough relative angle between the lines will be 45. Probably the question can be rephrased as "angle between the lines"

* Statement (1) ALONE is sufficient, but Statement (2) ALONE is not sufficient
* Statement (2) ALONE is sufficient, but Statement (1) ALONE is not sufficient
* BOTH statements TOGETHER are sufficient, but NEITHER statement ALONE is sufficient
* EACH statement ALONE is sufficient
* Statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are NOT sufficient
1: B + k = 1 N.S : 1/2,1/2, 0/1 etc.
2. BK = 0 N.S : 1/0, 0/1, etc.

Angle between two lines is arctan(\frac{m_1-m_2}{1+m_1m_2})
(1) Not sufficient
(2) All this says is that one of the lines is horizontal
(1+2) One of the lines is horizontal hence the other has a slope of 45 degrees. Sufficient to say angle is 45 degrees

Now wether it is -45 or 45 ...when you talk of angle of itnersection it is the same thing. The angles formed by the two lines will be 45 degrees and 135 degrees.

At what angle do lines y = Kx + B and y = Bx + K intersect ?

I dont think I wrote anything different from what you have written.

At what angle do the lines intersect can be interpreted as : at what angle from the X axis/ Y axis. To formulate a more "closed" question it would have been better if the statement read : angle between the lines.

From B + K = 1 and BK = 0 we have that b=0 and k=1 OR b=1 and k=0. In either cases the two lines are y=x and y=1:

Angle = 45 degrees.

Hope it helps.
