Consider the following systems of equations:

y= .5x-1
y= .5x+4

Are the graphs of the two lines intersecting lines, the same line, or parallel lines?
How many solutions does the system have?
A) No solution: The lines are parallel because the y-intercept is the same.
B) One Solution: The lines are parallel because the slope is the same.
C) Infinite Solutions: The lines are intersecting because the line is in slope form.
D) No solution: The lines are parallel because their slope is the same.

Plz help.

1. since they have the same slope (.5) they are either parallel or the same line.
Now try to find any value of x which satisfies both equations ...

2. the general slope-intercept equation is ... y = m x + b ... m is the slope

lines with the same slope are parallel
