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

  • algebra -

    ok this is my stuff!

    ok first figure out the y intercept of the 2nd equation.
    2y+3x=-4
    2y=-3x-4
    y=-3x/2-2
    so y intercept = -2
    then change equation 1 into y-intercept form:
    3x-2y=8
    -2y=-3x+8

    y=3x/2-4 <--- your final answer



    hope it helps:)
