 Question 368733: y=5x+6 -18x+3y=-54 Are the graphs of the lines in the pair parallel? Explain. Solution: In the second equation, divide everything by 3: -6x+y=-54 Then, add 54 to each side: 54-6x+y=0 Next, subtract y from each side: -6x+54=-y Now, add the two equations together: 0=-x+60 Finally, add x to both sides: x=60 The equation "x=60" denotes a vertical line, but the equation "y=5x+6" denotes a line with a slope of 5, so the lines are not parallel.
