Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1two parallel lines have same slope.. so we must first get the slope of the line 2x3y=0 we ca do that by transforming the equation into slope intercept form which has a general form of: y=ax+b where a is the slope so here 2x3y=0 2y=3x y=(3/2)x thus the slope is 3/2 which is positive a line with positive slope increases from left to right thus the answer is A
