Do you mean an acute angle with the positive x-axis?

I really this all of the details about the question,, any way forget it I'll find an answer but please answer this one for me :-

(find the equation for line passing through the point (1,2) and parallel to the line : x+2y=3?)

Firstly, you'll want to find the slope of that line. Then, any line parallel to that one will have the same slope. Can you find the slope of the line with equation x + 2y = 3?

I really forget how to find the slope in this situation, I just know : the slope = Δy/Δx, I know that law but I don't understand it ,, anyway

second : I want to know why any parallel lines will have same slope? I need to understand this and to take advantage from this in the future ...

What would two parallel lines look like?

they have a θ if 90°?

but not just that

if that so, can we say all lines in the world space have θ=90° are parallel?

Yes. And what are the slopes of those lines?

No, those are called perpendicular or orthogonal lines.

Do you understand why the lines |, | have the same slope?

no that is the problem

Let's look at this picture.

Any line of the form y = mx + c will have gradient m. The lines | and | have the same slope because one is the same as the other, just moved to a different location.

When you have an equation in point slope form like this y = mx + b then m is the slope.

then what is the slop of this x+2y=3

is it 2y=-x+3?

so y= -1/2x + 3/2

is the slope -0.5?

That is correct.
