Write an equation of the line containing the given point and parallel to the given line. Express your answer in the form y = mx + b.
(2,3); x + 6y = 7
The equation of the line is y =________

• Algebra 1a -

Find the slope:
6y=-x+7
y=-1/6 x + 7
so m=-1/6
Next, put the point in y=mx + b, and solve for b.
