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

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.

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

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 ⇒ 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.
