Write a slope-intercept equation of the line whose graph is described
Parallel to the graph of 3x + 2y = 5; y-intercept (0, −1)
The given line is not vertical (coefficient of y is non-zero), so we can find the slope of the given line.
The given line can be re-written in slope intercept form (y on the left) as:
Any line parallel to (1) would have the same coefficient of x (-1.5) and the y-intercept (2.5) could vary.
From the y-intercept (-1), we form the required line:
