write an equation of the line containing the given point and parrallel to the given line (6,4)8x3y=2

algebra 
lauren,
8x3y=2
3y=28x
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
