If they have the same slope or gradient of 2 but different y intercepts then they are parallel.

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

[ y = -2x + any other number ] is parallel to [ y = -2x + 6 ].

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

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.

Yes, they are. If you solve 2x + 7y = 6 for y, you get y = (-2x + 6) / 7. If you solve 7y + 2x + 6 = 0 for y, you get y = (-2x - 6) / 7. As you can see, both equations have the same slope. Therefore they are parallel. You can punch those equations into a graphing calculator and visually verify that they are indeed parallel.

The lines are parallel, but not the same.

A line that is parallel to [ y = 3 - 2x ] has the equation [ y = -2x plus any number ].

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

Y=2X+4. You must only change the plus blank...

y = 2x+10 Just change the y intercept.

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

[ y = 2x + 5 ] has a slope of 2. [ y = 2 ] is a horizontal line ... its slope is zero. Their slopes are different, so they're not parallel.

y = 2(x) + 2 is one example.

None. When these two equations are graphed, the two lines are parallel. Since they never intersect, there is no point that satisfies both equations.

Any line with a slope of -2x is parallel to your equation

No. The two lines are parallel with the first line being two units lower than the second.

It is: y = 2x+6 or any other equation that has the same slope as 2 but with a different y intercept

Because the slope of these lines are the same, they are parallel. One crosses the y-axis at 7 and the other at -7. When written in this manner the number in front of the x is the slope.
