Write an equation of the line containing he given point and parallel to the given line?
Express your answer in the form y=mx+b
(6,8);x+7y=5

  • math -

    x + 7 y = 5
    7 y = - x + 5
    y = (-1/7) x + 5/7
    so the slope , m , is -1/7
    y = -1 x/7 + b
    8 = -1(6)/7 + b
    b = 8 + 6/7
    b = (56+6)/7
    b = 62/7
    so
    y = -(1/7) x + 62/7
