Write the equation of the line containing the given point and parallel to the given line.
The equation of the line is y=
Express your answer in the form y=mx+b.
(7,8); x+7y=6
Express your answer in the form y=mx+b.
(8,9); 5x+y=9
Express your answer in the form y=mx+b.
(2,6); 8x+7y=5

Damon,
You do them all the same way. I will only do one.
7 y = x + 6
y = (1/7) x + 6/7
slope = m = 1/7
parallel line is of form
y = (1/7) x + b
solve for b with given point on line
8 = (1/7)7 + b
8 = 1 + b
b = 9
so
y = (1/7) x + 9
