If the second line is parallel to the first line, then it will have the same slope as the first line. To find the slope of the first line passing through the points (6, 2) and (6, 7), we use the formula:

[ \text{Slope} = \frac{{y_2 - y_1}}{{x_2 - x_1}} ]

Substituting the given points into the formula, we get:

[ \text{Slope} = \frac{{7 - 2}}{{6 - 6}} = \frac{5}{0} ]

Since the denominator is 0, it indicates that the line is vertical, and its slope is undefined. Therefore, the second line must also be vertical and parallel to the first line.

For a vertical line passing through the point (3, 8), all points on this line will have an x-coordinate of 3. So, any point with an x-coordinate of 3 will lie on the second line.

Therefore, any point of the form (3, y), where y is any real number, will lie on the second line and be parallel to the first line.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
