I think it is because atoms are so small, you have to measure many of them.. so we are actually taking an average which results in decimals. Does that make sense?

You can tell the lines are parallel if you solve each equation for y. The number in front of the x is the slope as in y =mx+b 6y =3x + 10 divide by 6 to get m=1/2 second equation 6y = 3x -4 m = 1/2 or you could graph both equations and see that they are parallel.
