at the airport the new run way will be parallel to a highway. on the scale drawing of the airport the equation that represents the highway is 6y=8x11. what is the equation for the runway

algebra 
Henry,
6y = 8x11.
8x  6y = 11.
m = A/B = 8/6 = 4/3.
Yint = C/B = 11/6
Y = mx + b.
Let b = 2:
Y = (4/3)X + 2.
3y = 4x + 6.
Eq: 4x3y = 6.
