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

    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=2x-1

    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 …
