# Chapter 5 - Linear Functions - 5-6 Parallel and Perpendicular Lines - Practice and Problem-Solving Exercises - Page 331: 32

#### Answer

The student likely meant to say 'perpendicular' instead of 'parallel'. Another line parallel to $y= 1/3*x + 1$ is actually $y = 1/3*x$.

#### Work Step by Step

$1/3 * -3 = -1$ The lines are perpendicular, not parallel.
