Write an equation of the line containing the given point and parallel to the given line. (6,-7):9x-8y=3 The equation of the line is y=
Solve for the slope of the 9x-8y=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 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.
use point-slope form
m=8/9 and (6,-7)
Final answer: y=8/9x - 37/3
sorry i got a wrong slope... this is the correct answer...
y=9/8x - 3/8
given: m= 9/8 and (6,-7)
y=9/8x-55/4 final answer...
