Write an equation of the line containing the given point and parallel to the given line. Express yur answer in the form y=mx+b
(7,9) x+4y=5
The equation of the line is y=

Here is a clue for the question:
Parallel lines have the same slope.
You have 1 line  find its slope.
Hope that helps 
I have tried to work this problem can not get this answer. I am sorry I was a problem

ok, you have a line x + 4y = 5
to find the slope rewrite in the form
y = mx + c
where m is the slope and c is a constant
in the above line m = 1/4.
So we want the equation of a line parallel to the above line but goes through the point (7,9).
As I said above parallel lines have the same slope so now we have a point and a slope. That's all we need to get the equation.
Just sub in m = 1/4 and (x1,y1) = (7,9)
into y  y1 = m(x  x1)
and tidy up.
That's it.
Hope that clears things up
