Write the slopeintercept form of an equation of the line that passes through the given point and is parallel to the graph of each equation.
1. (3,2), y=x + 5
2.(4,6),y=3/4x + 1
3.(8,2),5x4y=1
Could you guy check if these are the answer?
1.y=x1
2.y=3/4x 3
3.y=5/4x + 12
Thanks

good job
A quick way to see if you were right would have been to sub in the given point in your new equation.
If it satisfies, you're ok.
That is how I checked your equations.

Could do use one of mine and show me how you check it? Thanks

last one,
point (8,2) , your equation y = (5/4)x + 12
Left side
= y
= 2
Right side
= (5/4)x + 12
= (5/4)(8) + 12
= 40/4 + 12
= 10 + 12
= 2
Left side = Right side,
everything is good.
