Answer:The answer is below

Step-by-step explanation:The equation of a straight line is given by:

y = mx + b

where m is the slope of the line and b is the y intercept (value of y when x = 0).

Given the equation of two lines as , the two lines are parallel to each other if . Also the lines are perpendicular if

Given line BC:

3x + 2y = 8

2y = -3x + 8

y = -3x/2 + 4

Hence the slope of the line BC = -3/2

For line AD:

-3x – 2y = 6

-2y =3x + 6

y = -3x/2 – 3

Hence the slope of line AD is -3/2

Since both line BC and AD have equal slope (-3/2), hence both lines are parallel to each other
