Write an equation of the line containing the given point and parallel to the given line. Express your answer in the form Y= mx+b
(6,8); x+6y=5
The equation of the line is Y=
I do not how work this problem help me, please

put the equation into standard form:
x+6y=5
y= 1/6 x+5/6
so the slope is 1/6, which will be the slope of the parallel line
Y=1/6 x + b
to get b, put (6,8) into the equation.
