write an equation of the line contaning the given point and pairallel to the given line. it is

(7,-2)3x-7y=6 the equation of the line is y=?

  • algebra -

    7 y = 3x-6
    y = (3/7)x - 6/7
    slope m = 3/7 and that is the slope of any parallel line
    so form is
    y = (3/7) x + b and we need b
    -2 = (3/7)(7) + b
    b = -2 -3 = -5
    so
    y = (3/7)x -5
    or
    7y = 3x - 35
