    Look at the slope (number next to x). Since it is the same number in both it is parallel.

    m=2 in first equation and 2y=-x+6 so y=-1/2x+3 so m=-1/2 so slopes are not same not parallel (they are actually perpendicular)

    Yeah, the question is trying to trick you. First you have to solve for y, the look at it.
