    Think about it, what do 2 straight lines need to be pararell?

    it's that they don't intersect?

    Yes, they never intersect, and what does it matematically mean?

    remember, the slope!

    They have the same slope.

    You have the equation of a line, which is usually given in the general form Ax+By+c=0

    \[Slope=m=\frac{ -coefficient \ of \ x }{ coefficient \ of \ y }\]

    in your case, you have it put in a different way, with the y solved, that's what we call the explicit form of the equation of the line

    and so, to calculate the slope DIRECTLY just by seeing the equation, we have a trick

    IF they give you the equation in the general form, Ax+By+c = 0, the slope is -A/B

    Now, if you have it in the explicit form, y=mx+n, what would be the slope in there? try it

    @GCR92 Always try to simplify it dude. We need to make it look as simpler as possible :P

    Thanks, I know what you mean, but the ammount of concepts that one needs to DOMINATE to really know math is so big that sometimes i just can't explain something in 2 words

    Well,giving direct answers or providing the whole solution is not allowed on OS @GCR92 We do not want the answerers to do all the work,we would like the asker to participate in the solution though :)
