    when two lines are parallel the have the same gradient.... so first step here it to find the gradient of (-1,3) and (2,-7)|dw:1436210401904:dw| now we would have an equation like this|dw:1436210720108:dw|

    my answer choiices are: Yes, both are vertical Yes, both lines have the same slope No, both have positive slopes that are not equal No, both have negative slopes that are not equal.

    |dw:1436211244404:dw|so, for the two equations the slope is different..which mean they are not parallel.
