Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1They have the same slope. If you write the lines in the slopeintercept form, you'll get y=ax+b for each line. A is the slope, b is the yintercept. For two or more parallel lines the coefficient "a" will be the same. Hope this helps.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@mathishard13 is correct. The slopes of the two lines must be the same in order for the lines to be parallel. The b part of the equation must be different however, or the lines would be the same exact line.
