Write an equation of the line containing the given point and parallel to the given line. (6,7):9x8y=3 The equation of the line is y=

Solve for the slope of the 9x8y=3. You get y= 9/8x  3/8. So your slope is 9/8. Because the line is parallel. You then use point slope formula to get equation of line in y=mx+b form.(slope form).
So yy1=m(xx1)
y(7)=9/8(x6)
y+7=9/8(x6)
So y=9/8x 55/4
I did the math in my head so double check the arithmetic. 
First, get the slope of the equation by writing it in the form y=mx+b.
given: 9x8y=3
(8y=9x+3)/8
y=8/9x3/8
slope=8/9
use pointslope form
m=8/9 and (6,7)
y(7)=8/9(x6)
y+7=8/9x48/9
y=8/9x48/97
Final answer: y=8/9x  37/3 
sorry i got a wrong slope... this is the correct answer...
9x8y=3
(8y=9x+3)/8
y=9/8x  3/8
m=9/8
given: m= 9/8 and (6,7)
y(7)=9/8(x6)
y+7=9/8x27/4
y=9/8x27/47
y=9/8x55/4 final answer... 
9x8y=2
