# Is 4x-6y2 parallel to 2x 3y12?

I guess your two equations are:

1. 4x - 6y = 2
2. 2x + 3y = 12

Since the plus (+) and equals (=) signs have been stripped from your question.

If this is the case, then they are not parallel since their gradients are not the same.

Without working them out exactly, it can be seen that one is positive (equation 1.) and the other is negative (equation 2.):

1. 4x - 6y = 2 ⇒ 6y = 4x - 2 ⇒ +ve gradient
2. 2x + 3y = 12 ⇒ 3y = -2x + 12 ⇒ -ve gradient

### What are the steps to rewrite the equation in function form 2x 3y12?

If you mean: 2x+3y = 12 then y = -2/3x+4 whereas -2/3 is the slope and 4 is the y intercept

### How do you write 6x 3y12 in slope intercept form?

If you mean: 6x+3y = 12 then it is y = -2x+4 in slope-intercept form

### How do you write 6x plus 3y12 in slope intercept form?

If you mean: 6x+3y = 12 then it is y = -2x+4 in slope-intercept form

### Which line is parallel to 2x 4y6?

If you mean: 2x+4y = 6 then 2x+4y = 12 is parallel to it because parallel lines retain the same slope but have different y intercepts

### Which line is parallel to y equals -2x plus 6?

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

### What the slope of 6x-3y12?

If you mean: 6x-3y = 12 Then: -3y = -6x+12 And: y = 2x-4 So: the slope is 2 and the y intercept is -4

y = 2x

### Which line is not parallel to the graph of y 2x 1?

Any line which has a gradient which is not 2 will not be parallel to the line y = 2x + 1.

### Are lines y equals 2x and y 2x equals 3 perpendicular or parallel?

If the second equation is: y minus 2x equals 3, then:y - 2x = 3 &rArr; 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.
