please help please show work so i can do others ok so i have to find the equation of the linethat contains given point and is parallel to the given line then write a slope intercept form if possible

(8,-4) y=-1/2x+11


I also have to do the same for this type and im stuck too

(-5,-6) x axis

  • Math -

    write given line as y = m x + b
    y = (-1/2) x + 11
    so m = slope = -1/2)
    we need the same slope so our line is of form
    y = (-1/2) x + b, but we need to find b
    use given point to find b
    -4 = (-1/2)8 + b
    -4 = -4 + b
    b = 0
    so
    y = (-1/2)x + 0 or -2 y = x

  • Math -

    slope of x axis is 0 so
    y = 0 x + b
    -6 = 0 (-5) + b
    b = -6
    so
    y = -6
    horizontal line six units below x axis
