In the xy-plane, what is the slope of line l?

(1) Line l dose not intersect the line with equation y = 1 - x.
(2) Line l intersects the line with equation y = x – 1.

Does it mean that from1- line l is parallel to given line, hence same slope?

A it is
Yes if lines dont intersect they are parallel

if two lines do not intersect then they are must parallel and their slopes are equal.

Yes, if the lines do not intersect in the xy-plane, then they are parallel and have the same slope. So, (1) is sufficient: slope of L=-1 and (2) is not as there are infinite # of lines which intersects the line y=x-1.

Hope it helps.

Does not intersect means the lines are parallel. Slopes of parallel lines are related (They are equal) Statement 1 is sufficient.

Statement 2 says the line intersects the liven equation. Had it been angle 90 degrees, we could have concluded the slope since the slope would have been equal to Slope * (-1).
