Are these Correct?

Write an equation for the line in point/slope form and slope/intercept form that has the given condition.

1. Passes through (3, 2) and is parallel to 2x-y=4
= 4x+y

2. Passes through (-1, -1) and is perpendicular to y = 5/2x + 3
=6\7x-2

    I can't interpret your answers.

    1.
    2x-y=4, or
    y = 2x-4
    has slope 2. So, the line through (3,2) with slope=2 is

    y-2 = 2(x-3)
    y = 2x-4

    2.
    y = 5/2 x + 3
    has slope 5/2
    so, the perpendicular line has slope -2/5

    y+1 = -2/5 (x+1)
    y = -2/5 x - 7/5

    I'd be interested to know what steps you followed to arrive at your answers.
