write an equation of the line contaning the given point and pairallel to the given line. it is
(7,2)3x7y=6 the equation of the line is y=?

7 y = 3x6
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
