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

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
