One similarity: They are both straight lines.

One difference: They are not the same line.

Please specify your question. - Jun 25th 2005, 12:55 PMHayabusa
I wrote what was on the page. That is all it ask for. I really don't know what to do with the problem. Do I have to work out the problem or write that they are both straight lines but aren't the same line?

Discuss the fact that one of them has a positive slope and the other has a negative slope. One of the slopes is more steep than the other.

Also point out the different intercepts.

That should be sufficient. - Jun 25th 2005, 05:21 PMHayabusa
