Answer:Given pair of linear equations is

3x – y – 5 = 0 …

(i) 6x – 2y – p = 0 …

(ii) On comparing with ax + by + c = 0 we get We get, a1 = 3,

b1 = – 1,

c1 = – 5;

a2 = 6,

b2 = – 2,

c2 = – p;

a1 /a2 = 3/6 = ½

b1 /b2 = ½

c1 /c2 = 5/p

Since, the lines represented by these equations are parallel, then a1/a2 = b1/b2 ≠ c1/c2 Taking last two parts, we get ½ ≠ 5/p So, p ≠ 10 Hence, the given pair of linear equations are parallel for all real values of p except 10.
