Which of the following lines is parallel to line x = 1.44 - 3*y
y = x/6 + 25
y = .48 - x/3
x/3 - y = 2
y + x/3 = 10
x/4 + 3 * y = 1
Please provide explaination
|| lines have same slope
the given equation has slope = -1/3
so A, C, E out...
B is the same equation as the given equation once you simplify... so B out
D has same slope and y-intersect is different. They will not xcross each other.
I was thinking there is something wrong with B. Now I understand, for 2 lines to be || their constants also need to be different. Good point!
