i have this question i have been working on two days no and cannot get the correct solution. I am to write and equation of the line containin the given point and parallel to the given line. I put my answer in the form of y=mx+b and I keep getting y= 7x+1
Can you show me what I am doing wrong
(6,7) x+4=7

Check the given Eq. Should it be
y = x + 4 ? (6 , 7).
m1 = 1 = Slope of given Eq
y = mx + b
7 = 1*6 + b,
Solve for b:
7 = 6 + b,
Subtract 6 from eaqch side:
1 = b or
b = 1.
Eq: y = 1x + 1
If your given Eq is different, use this as a guide or Repost it.
