please help please show work so i can do others ok so i have to find the equation of the linethat contains given point and is parallel to the given line then write a slope intercept form if possible
(8,4) y=1/2x+11
I also have to do the same for this type and im stuck too
(5,6) x axis

write given line as y = m x + b
y = (1/2) x + 11
so m = slope = 1/2)
we need the same slope so our line is of form
y = (1/2) x + b, but we need to find b
use given point to find b
4 = (1/2)8 + b
4 = 4 + b
b = 0
so
y = (1/2)x + 0 or 2 y = x

slope of x axis is 0 so
y = 0 x + b
6 = 0 (5) + b
b = 6
so
y = 6
horizontal line six units below x axis
