Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You are correct in saying that the slopes of the equations are 3 and 2. Since the slopes are different, this means that the lines are NOT parallel. Nonparallel lines always cross at one point. This one intersection point is the solution. In short, nonparallel lines have exactly one solution.
