Find the slope intercept equation of the line with the following properties: Parallel to the line 5x+2y=1; containing points (-5,4)

  • College Algebra - ,

    5x+2y=1

    2 y = -5 x + 1

    y = (-5/2) x + 1/2
    so m, the slope = -5/2

    y = (-5/2) x + b
    4 = (-5/2)(-5) + b
    8/2 = 25/2 + b
    b = -17/2
    so
    y = (-5/2)x - 17/2
    2 y + 5 x = -17
