Can someone pls tell me whether the graphs of the lines will be collinear, parallel, or intersecting? y= 4x+1 y=4x-3

    I just need the explaination of the formula to tell whether or not it is parallel or intersecting and col linear

    Hint: the equation y = mx+b has the slope m

    ex: y = 9x + 20 has the slope of 9

    sorry the lines are not intersecting. Extremely sorry, I made a mistake. They have same slopes, so they should be parallel.

    4 is the slope, yes

    since the slope is 4 for both of the lines, the lines are either parallel or collinear

    the two lines are collinear if and only if the two y-intercepts are the same

    one passes from y=-3 and other from y=1, so they are parallel(since slopes are same) but not co-linear.

    so if its the same its parallel and what happens if its collinear?

    no, if the y-intercepts are the same, the lines are collinear if the y-intercepts are different, the lines are parallel both cases are true when the slopes are both equal

    y = mx+b b is the y-intercept ------------------------------ ex: for y = 2x+11 11 is the y-intercept ------------------------------ ex: y = 14x-13 which is the same as y = 14x + (-13) -13 is the y-intercept

    in this case the y intercepts are the same, which is 4x? And what do I do with the 1 and -3?

    to find Y=intercept, put x=0 in each equation. simple. Any point on y-axis is represented as x=0 and y=Y

    y = 4x + 1, y intercept is 1

    if the slopes are different, then the lines will intersect
