The equation for line *m* is y=1/2x-5 . Use this information and these descriptions to write an equation for line *n*, line *p*, and line *r*.

a) Line *m* and line *n* have no solutions. Write an equation that can represent line *n*.

b)Line *m* and line *p* have infinitely many solutions. Write an equation that can represent line* p*.

c)Line *m *and line *r *have one solution. Write an equation that can represent line *r*.

OK, so first off a) and c) have infinitely many solutions

a) they are parellel, so y=1/2x+b, where be is anything but -5

b) they are the same exact line, so y=1/2x-5

c) they are different, so y=mx+b, where m is anything but 1/2 and b is anything but -5
