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+3x=-4 (show work) I am stuck with this problem. Can you please show me how to do these types of equations? Thank you

  • college algebra -

    3x-2y = 8
    -2y = -3x+8
    y = 3/2 -4 slope = 3/2

    2y + 3x = -4
    2y = -3x -4
    y =-3/2 -2 y-intercept = -2

    Now use y = mx + b to write your equation
