#### Answer:

#### Explanation:

#"the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form"# is.

#•color(white)(x)y=mx+b#

#"where m is the slope and b the y-intercept"#

#"both equations are in this form"#

#y=1/3xtom=1/3#

#y=1/3x-2tom=1/3#

#• " Parallel lines have equal slopes"#

#"Since the lines are parallel they never intersect thus there"#

#"is no solution"#

graph{(y-1/3x)(y-1/3x+2)=0 [-10, 10, -5.005, 4.995]}
