They are parallel lines

The two lines are: 2x+4y=2 4x+2y=5 Le't write them in slope intercept form 4y=-2x+2 or y=-1/2+1/2 AND 2y=-4x+5 or y=-2x+5/2 Now we use the fact the parallel lines have the same slope. One line here has slop =1/2 and the other has -2. Next if lines are perpendicular the product of the slopes is -1. This is not the case here either. So the answer is NEITHER!

It is not one, but they are two perpendicular lines.

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.

Neither perpendicular nor parallel

They are parallel lines

parallel

Yes, they're parallel lines. Both slopes are 2.

One single line is never parallel or perpendicular. Those words tell you somethingabout the relationship between two lines.

If you want to graph parallel lines, they need to have the same slope (Ex. 2x+2 and 2x+3)- parallel lines cannot have the same y-intercept because the two line would be the same. Perpendicular lines slopes need have to be opposite reciprocals (Ex. -2x+4 and +1/2x+3)- perpendicular lines can have the same y-intercepts, it doesn't make a difference.

They are parallel lines with a vertical separation of 1.

The lines are parallel, but not the same.

the answer in the text book is 0.693 but i cannot get the answer

They are parallel.
