Give the equation of the line that passes through (-5,-1) and is parallel to the line y=-1/4x
the -1/4 is the SLOPE. You have a POINT. By definition, in order to be PARALLEL, two lines must have the SAME SLOPE. Is there some specified form for your final answer equation? There is only one formula that I can think of that would work in this case. . .
