The lines can be written in the slope intercept form y = mx + c

x- 3y - 2 = 0

=> 3y = x - 2

=> y = x/3 - 2/3

The slope is 1/3

2x + y - 5 = 0

=> y = -2x + 5

The slope is -2

**As the slope of the two lines is not the same, they are not parallel, therefore they are intersecting as they don't have the same slope.**
