Unless they are the exact same lines, no. Parallel lines do not touch. If two lines have the same intercept value, they share a point, and therefore touch.

Skew lines are lines that lie on separate planes. and do not intercept parallel lines that are sometimes on the same plane, but don't intersect

If parallel lines had the same y intercept then they would intersect each other at that point (0, c). Parallel lines don't intersect at all so they cannot have the same y intercept. The only exception would be if both lines were the same.

If the lines are straight and have the same slope they are parallel, no matter what the y intercept is

In plain geometry, if 2 lines never intersect, they are Parallel

Parallel lines have the same slope, which makes them parallel. However, they cannot have the same y intercept, or else it would be the same line.

Parallel lines cannot intersect in the Euclidean plane. Intersecting lines are not parallel.

Parallel

the parallel lines never intercept so they do not have any common points.

parallel lines.

Parallel lines intercept congruent arcs on a circle. More explanation: Parallel lines never interSECT but they can interCEPT Congruent arcs means that the two arcs would have the same measure of the arcs.

yes two lines that are the same line are parallel because they continue forever and do not intercept.

The difference is in the location of their intercept with any other non-parallel line.

If the lines are straight and have the same slope they are parallel, no matter what the y intercept is
