Work Step by Step

If two lines are parallel, then the lines don't intersect. Although the lines don't intersect, there can still be a solution to the equations. Example: $y < x+2$ and $y> x-4$ don't intersect. However, there is an area that is a solution set for both equations. (The graph is included.)
