    Given that the value of b can never be equal to -1, determine if the equations are intersecting, parallel, or coincident. x + y = ab bx - y = a

    x + y = ab --> y = -x + ab bx - y = a --> y = bx - a ^ so if b cannot be = -1 then they cannot be parallel (since they would not have the same slopes) and they have to be at least parallel to be coincident
