at the airport the new run way will be parallel to a highway. on the scale drawing of the airport the equation that represents the highway is 6y=8x-11. what is the equation for the runway

  • algebra -

    6y = 8x-11.
    8x - 6y = 11.
    m = -A/B = -8/-6 = 4/3.
    Y-int = C/B = -11/6

    Y = mx + b.
    Let b = 2:
    Y = (4/3)X + 2.
    3y = 4x + 6.

    Eq: 4x-3y = -6.
