1. Identify the slope of the first equation:

y = \frac{2}{3}x + 1

The slope,m_1 , is:

m_1 = \frac{2}{3}

2. Identify the slope of the second equation:

y = \frac{2}{3}x - 1

The slope,m_2 , is:

m_2 = \frac{2}{3}

3. Compare the slopes:

Sincem_1 = m_2 , the lines have the same slope and are therefore parallel.

Answer: The lines are Parallel

The slope,

2. Identify the slope of the second equation:

The slope,

3. Compare the slopes:

Since

Answer: The lines are Parallel
