The slope of a parallel line will have the same slope as the original line.
The equation in the problem is in Standard Linear form. The standard form of a linear equation is: Ax+By=C
Where, if at all possible, A, B, and Care integers, and A is non-negative, and, A, B, and C have no common factors other than 1
The slope of an equation in standard form is: m = - A B
3 x + 2 y = 6
The slope of this line is:
m = - 3 2
Therefore, the slope of a parallel line is - 3 2

The title might not be too descriptive; I'm not sure how to classify this question.
I have a set of linear equations of the form
ciAi+piBi=E
where Ai,Bi and E are 3 by 1 column vectors and ci and pi are scalars. As the subscripts indicate, I have n such linear equations, where all the scalars and vectors except E change with each one. Another limitation is that all I know for each set of linear equations is Ai and Bi, and I want to find E.
Is there a method for solving these equations?
The equation above is a simplification of the equation
RpTTD=ciAipiRDBi
where RpT is the inverse of a rotation matrix, TD is a translation vector and RD is another rotation matrix. I am interested in finding the rotation matrix Rp. Again, this equation describes the relationship between two homogenious points (Ai and Bi) in 3D space, where the z component is 1 (i.e., the c and p scalars project the points to somewhere in the 3D space other than (x, y, 1)). I have n point-pairs A and B.

I want to solve the differential equation y y 2 = y + x y . I notice that the differential is not in the general form of first order linear equations which is y + P ( x ) y = Q ( x ). In fact the above equation is not linear.
I read that I have to switch the dependent and independent variable of the problem and then the problem will turn into linear first order differential equation. I don't quite understand the concept of switching dependent and independent variable, can someone explain?
