Write the slope-intercept 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),5x-4y=1

Could you guy check if these are the answer?
1.y=x-1
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.
