Line f has a slope of −6/3, and line g has a slope of −8/4.
What can be determined about distinct lines f and g?
A. The lines have proportional slopes.
B. The lines will intersect.
C. The lines are parallel.
D. Nothing can be determined about the lines from this information.

I think the answer is A or B.
