equation of two lines that intersect

Postby Cmiller on Sun Jun 21, 2009 11:36 pm

Hi, I need to know how to write an equation of two lines that intersect but when graphed look parallel, and at what point do the two lines intersect. I know how to write equations but don't understand how two lines can intersect but look parallel.
Thanks

Just have the slopes be really close, but not quite equal. :wink:

For an explanation, scroll about halfway down this page.
