What is the equation of the line parallel to 4x - 3y = 8 and passing through the point (5, - 1) ?

A. y - 5 = 4/3 (x + 1)
B. y + 1 = 4/3 (x - 5)
C. y + 1 = -3/4 (x - 5)
D. y - 5 = -3/4 (x + 1)

  1. 3 y = 4 x - 8
    y = (4/3) x - 8/3
    slope = 4/3
    same slope for our line

    (y+1) / (x-5) = 4/3
