Write an equation of the line containing the specified point and parallel to the indicated line.(1,4)3x+y=5

  • algebra - ,

    original line is
    y = -3 x + 5
    the slope is thus -3
    and any line parallel is of form
    y = -3 x + b
    all we need is b
    4 = -3(1) + b
    b = 7
    so
    y = -3 x + 7
