Parallel lines have the same slope. So if you have a line with slope = 2, for example, and another line is parallel to the first line, it will also have slope = 2.

Parallel lines have the same slope. The slope of the second line is also 13.

The same. Parallel lines have the same slope.

The slope of line AB will be 1/2. Two parallel lines will always have the same slope, so if you know the slope of one line that is parallel to another, you know the other line's slope.

For two lines to be parallel they must have the same slope. A line parallel to a line with slope -2 would have a slope of -2.

if the slope of a line is 2/3, then the slope of a parallel line would be 2/3.

It will have the same slope of -2 but the y intercept of the line will be different

Parallel lines have the same slope. So if you know the slope of a line in question, or you can calculate it, then you know the slope of any line parallel to that line.

Parallel lines have the same slope. The slope of the second line is also 13.

The slope is 5 over 2, if they're paralell they have the same slope

If it's parallel then it has the same slope, so -2/3. The formula for both of these lines is -2/3x + c.
