y-(-7)=m(x-5) so you just sub in the gradient and solve

the question is find the equation of the line having the given slope and containing the given point
anonymous
  • anonymous
You sub it into the point-gradient formula, which is y-y1=m(x-x1) so using the given, sub in your gradient and your y and x-values to get: y-(-7)=(7/8)(x-5) 8(y+7)=7(x-5) 7x-8y-35-56=0 7x-8y-91=0

Does that help? :I

You need to find the slope of the original line because the new line is parallel to it and therefore must have the same slope. Then you can write the equation for the new line using the point slope formula \[y-y_0 = m(x-x_0)\] Where y0 and x0 are the y and x coordinates of a point on the line, and m is the slope of the line.

where do u get 56 from
anonymous
  • anonymous
8(y+7)=7(x-5) 8y+56=7x-35 0=7x-8y-35-56

answer is 7/8x-
anonymous

83/8

Ohhh you get that answer if you don't get rid of the fraction
anonymous
  • anonymous
and leave 8 as the denominator
anonymous
  • anonymous
right whichs is what i wasnt understandin
anonymous
  • anonymous
When you leave it as a fraction: y-(-7)=(7/8)(x-5) y+7=(7x/8) - 35/8)
anonymous
  • anonymous
hold on

  • anonymous
can someone type out the working, leaving it in fractional form, it's taking so long for me, ha
anonymous

y = (7x/8) - (91/7) confirmed
anonymous
  • anonymous
\[y+7=[7/8](x-5) \rightarrow y = (7x)/8 - (7*5)/8 -7 \] \[\rightarrow y = (7/8)x - 35/8 - 56/8 = (7/8)x - 91/8\]
