Write an equation of the line that passes through the given point and is parrel to the given line.
1. (1,3) Y=2x+2
I'm thinking that you just plug in 1 and 3 for x and y.
So, 3=2(1)+2
Correct?
Please help me. :)
Thank you
Allyson

Nope: Y=mx+ b is the general form. Plug in (1,3) to get
3=m+b
Now parallel means the same slope (y=2x+2, slope 2)
3=2+b
b=1
equation of line? y=2x1 
Thank you.

Write an equation of the line that passes through the point ( 8,3) and has the slope of 1/4 So, I think you would write it as Y=1/4x+B and, you'd plug in 8 for the x, and 1 for the y. So you'd get 1=1/4(4) + B And you'd get.. 1=1+B …
