write an equation of the line parallel to the line given by 3x-2y=8 and having the same y- intercept as the line given by 2y+3=-4

  • math -

    first equation:
    2y=3x-8
    y=3/2 x -4
    you have the slope, so theline parallel to this has a slope of 3/2

    second equation:
    2y=hmmmm. where is the x?
    anyway,find the y intercept (where x is zero).

    then, your equation is y=3/2 x +yntercept

    thank you
