Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y(7)=m(x5) so you just sub in the gradient and solve

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You sub it into the pointgradient formula, which is yy1=m(xx1) so using the given, sub in your gradient and your y and xvalues to get: y(7)=(7/8)(x5) 8(y+7)=7(x5) 7x8y3556=0 7x8y91=0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You 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 \[yy_0 = m(xx_0)\] Where y0 and x0 are the y and x coordinates of a point on the line, and m is the slope of the line.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When you leave it as a fraction: y(7)=(7/8)(x5) y+7=(7x/8)  35/8)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[y+7=[7/8](x5) \rightarrow y = (7x)/8  (7*5)/8 7 \] \[\rightarrow y = (7/8)x  35/8  56/8 = (7/8)x  91/8\]
