Write the equation of the line containing the given point and parallel to the given line.
The equation of the line is y=
Express your answer in the form y=mx+b.
(8,9); 2x=9y+4

find slope
9y = 2x  4
y = (2/9) x 4/9
slope = m = 2/9 for this line and all parallel lines
y = (2/9) x + b
9 = (2/9)(8) + b
81 = 16 + 9 b
b = 97/9
so
y = (2/9) x + 97/9
