The equation of the line is y=?

(-5,9);8x=7y+5

- Math Help PLEASE -
**Reiny**, Friday, May 2, 2008 at 11:33pmsince the new line is parallel, it will differ only in the constant,

that is,

its equation will be 8x = 7y + c

plug in the point (-5,9)

-40 = 63 + c

c = -103

so we have

8x = 7y - 103 , rearrange

8x + 103 = 7y

(8/7)x + 103/7 = y
