Show Content
Detailed Solution6x  5  x2 = (1)(x2  5 + 6x)= x2  6x + 5 = (x  5)(x  1) (x  1) = 1  x = (x  5)(1  x) 

6.

Show Content
Detailed SolutionTwo lines are said to be parallel if the slope of the two lines are equal.The equation : \(3y + 2x + 7 = 0\) \(3y = 2x  7\) \(y = \frac{2}{3} x  \frac{7}{3}\) \(\frac{\mathrm d y}{\mathrm d x} =  \frac{2}{3}\) All the options have the same slope except \(3y  2x + 7 = 0\).
