32. ### Multiply

There are some short cuts: 1 will always work since the number is even (ends in 8) the number is divisible by 2. If the sum of the digits is divisible by 3 then the number is divisible by 3. If the number is divisible by 2 and 3 then it is divisible by 6.

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.
