y = -7x + 6 is the equation of a straight line.

It has a slope of '-7' and a y-intercept of '6'.

For it to be parallel it must be compared to another line.

e.g. y = -7x + 12 is a paralle line

However,

y = 7x + 6 is NOT a parallel line, because the slope is in a different direction.

x2 + 7x = 2x2 + 6 x2 - 2x2 + 7x = 6 -x2 +7x - 6 = 0 or alternatively x2 - 7x + 6 = 0

9x+6 = 7x+18 9x-7x = 18-6 2x = 12 x = 6

x=6

7x + y = 6 y = 6 - 7x dy/dx = 0-7 = -7 Slope = -7

Here is the work for that problem. 7x+6= 41 7x=41-6 (subtracting 6 from both sides) 7x=35 x=5

7x + y + z = 6 7x + y + 4z = 9 y + x = 6 Take the first two statements and subtract them. 7x + y + z = 6 7x + y + 4z = 9 _____________ 0 + 0 - 3z = -3 Therefore: z = 1 Then you are left with: 7x + y + 1 = 6 7x + y + 4 = 9 which is impossible, so this is an impossible equation.

7x + 6 = -18 7x = -24 x = -24/7 x = -3.428571 recurring (that is, -3.428571428571...)

x2 + 7x + 9 = 3 ∴ x2 + 7x + 6 = 0 ∴ (x + 6)(x + 1) = 0 ∴ x ∈ {-6, -1}
