If two lines are parallel, what is the relation between their slopes?

are they equal distance?. i dunno im horrible with math, not one of my strong points

So now you have 7x = 5y + 6.
Since we need the slope, we need to solve for y again.

okay so would we need to subtract 6 from both sides?

Yep, that's the first step.

-6+7x=5y

or 5y=7x-6

Right. What's next?

get the y by itself

Exactly. So since the y is multiplied by 5, how do we get it by itself?

divide

Right. So we divide each part of the right by 5; what do we get?

y=7/5x-6/5

Boom! Exactly.
So now we know what the slope of a parallel line would have to be. What is it?

7/5

Right. So now we'll need another equation that looks like:
y = 7/5x + b
Does that make sense?

yea that does

okay so 8=7/5(-2)+b

is that right

Absolutely!

So now what do I do?

So we need to figure out what b is, right? How should we do that?

um get b by itself?

Exactly. So what's the first step?

multiply 7/5(-2)

Ok, what does that equal?

-6/5

Not quite. Remember you are multiplying 7/5 by -2. Do you know how to multiply fractions?

not really is it common denominators at all?
