i have this question i have been working on two days no and cannot get the correct solution. I am to write and equation of the line containin the given point and parallel to the given line. I put my answer in the form of y=mx+b and I keep getting y= 7x+1

Can you show me what I am doing wrong

(6,7) x+4=7

Check the given Eq. Should it be

y = x + 4 ? (6 , 7).

m1 = 1 = Slope of given Eq

y = mx + b

7 = 1*6 + b,

Solve for b:

7 = 6 + b,

Subtract 6 from eaqch side:

1 = b or

b = 1.

Eq: y = 1x + 1

If your given Eq is different, use this as a guide or Repost it.
