write an equation of the line containing the given point and parallel to the given line
(3,3) 7x2y=5
need help please
7(3)2(3)= 5 ?
21 6= 5? this does not look right, please show me where I am supposed to place the (3,3)to solve the equation thanks

Marth,
First find the slope of the given line (7x  2y = 5). Then use y  y1 = m(x  x1) to find the equation of the line passing through the point (x1, y1) = (3, 3)

Marth,
How do you find the slope of a line? If the point were changed to (1, 1) would the slope of the line change?
If y = mx + b, then the slope is m and the yintercept is b.
