Find the equation of the line that is parallel to the line formed by the equation 3x + 2y = -20 and passes through the point (-24, 12).

  • math -

    3x + 2y = -20

    rearrange to make y subject so


    so the gradient of the line is -3/2

    so the gradient of the new line is -3/2 as it is parallel.

    so the new line is of the form

    y=(-3/2)x + c

    you have two values in the question

    substitute these to find c.
