They are both parallel because the slope or gradient is the same but the y intercept is different.

Neither: because one line, by itself, can be neither parallel or perpendicular. These characteristics are relevant only in the context of another line (or lines). The given line is parallel to some lines and perpendicular to others.


If the second equation is: y minus 2x equals 3, then:y - 2x = 3 ⇒ y = 2x + 3 and it is parallel to y = 2x.Otherwise (with with missing operator as "plus", "multiply" or "divide"), the lines are neither parallel nor perpendicular.



The second equation works out as y = -1/2x+6 therefore it is perpendicular


One single line is never parallel or perpendicular. Those words tell you somethingabout the relationship between two lines.


[ y = 2x plus or minus any number ] is parallel to it. [ y = -0.5x plus or minus any number ] is perpendicular to it.


One single line is never parallel or perpendicular. Those words tell you somethingabout the relationship between two lines.


They are perpendicular lines because the slopes are 3/4 and -4/3 respectively.


If you mean: y=2x+4 and x+2y=12 => y=-1/2x+6 which means that they are perpendicular to each other.


No. they are parallel, since the slopes are both equal in this case 3. To be perpendicular the product of the slopes of both lines is equal to -1 (i.e., m1*m2 = -1).



The two lines are: 2x+4y=2 4x+2y=5 Le't write them in slope intercept form 4y=-2x+2 or y=-1/2+1/2 AND 2y=-4x+5 or y=-2x+5/2 Now we use the fact the parallel lines have the same slope. One line here has slop =1/2 and the other has -2. Next if lines are perpendicular the product of the slopes is -1. This is not the case here either. So the answer is NEITHER!



The slopes of perpendicular lines are negative reciprocals.[ y = -3x + 2 ] is perpendicular to [ y = x/3 plus any number ].






Yes. You can tell that by looking at the slope. The slope of the first equation is +1 and the slope of the second equation is -1. That makes them perpendicular.


No because the slope of the second equation is 1/4 and for it to be perpendicular to the first equation it should be 1/3





Yes, they're parallel lines. Both slopes are 2.
