# What is the solution of the following system of equations?: y = (1/3)x + 6, y = (1/3)x - 6

$\text{ no solution}$
The 2 equations are of the form $y = m x + b$ where m represents the slope and b the y-intercept.
$\text{both have a slope } m = \frac{1}{3}$ which indicates they are $\textcolor{b l u e}{\text{ parallel lines}}$
