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.
(-8,9); 2x=9y+4

  • Algebra - ,

    find slope
    9y = 2x - 4
    y = (2/9) x -4/9
    slope = m = 2/9 for this line and all parallel lines

    y = (2/9) x + b
    9 = (2/9)(-8) + b
    81 = -16 + 9 b
    b = 97/9
    so
    y = (2/9) x + 97/9
