Write an equation of the line containing the given point and parallel to the given line. (8,-4); 6x-5y=2?

  • algebra -

    since the new line is parallel to the old one, it will differ only in the constant
    let the new one be
    6x - 5y = c
    Plug in the point (8,-4)
    48 + 20 = c
    c = 68

    so : 6x - 5y = 68
