# Question #e45fb

##### 2 Answers

Yes slopes are equal

#### Explanation:

Any line can be expressed as

Hence here the slope of the line is

So

Slope is

Now for finding the slope of the line formed by the other 2 points we use

So substituting the values we get

Therefore the slopes are equal hence the lines formed are parallel

Hope u find it helpful :)

See below

#### Explanation:

Let the lines be

For

using two point form (as 2 points are given),

**POINT TO REMEMBER :-**

If the slopes of the lines are equal then, the lines are parallel or coincident.

From

From

We can clearly see that, the slopes of both the lines are equal,

i.e.,

**We conclude that the lines are parallel as their slopes are
equal.**
