Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1your most welcome... and remember since both the lines are parallel the value of a and b in both the equation will always be the SAME!!!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1c1 is the constant of the first equation and c2 s the constant of second equation.. since your using modulus,i.e,absolute value of it.. IT doesn't matter which equation you choose as first or second..
