write an equation of the line containing the given point and parrallel to the given line (6,-4)8x-3y=2

  • algebra - ,

    -8x-3y=2
    -3y=2-8x
    y=(8/3)x+2

    so the slope of the given line is 8/3 and since the line is parallel, it will have the same slope. now we can use the given point to solve for b

    y=mx+b
    y=(8/3)x+b
    -4=(8/3)(6)+b
    12=b
