write an equation of the line containing the given point and parallel to the given line
(3,-3) 7x-2y=5

7(3)-2(-3)= 5 ?

21- 6= 5? this does not look right, please show me where I am supposed to place the (3,-3)to solve the equation thanks

First find the slope of the given line (7x - 2y = 5). Then use y - y1 = m(x - x1) to find the equation of the line passing through the point (x1, y1) = (3, -3)

-5,4?

y2-y1
-----
x2-x1

2-(-3)
------ -5/4
7-3

How do you find the slope of a line? If the point were changed to (1, 1) would the slope of the line change?

If y = mx + b, then the slope is m and the y-intercept is b.
