Given the equations of two lines, describe how to determine if the lines are parallel.
Coordinate Geometry is a very important topic in mathematics in which various equations are represented as curves on the cartesian, polar, or other types of planes.
Answer: If the slopes of the given lines are equal then we can say that the given lines are parallel.
Let us proceed step by step.
A parallel line has a unique property of the same slope and not the same intercept value.
Let us consider two straight lines whose equations are given below
y = m1x + c1 and y = m2x +c2
Now to check whether two given lines are parallel or not, we need to check their slopes.
