Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you put the equation in the form y=mx + b m will be your slope.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0err y=mx+b m is the slope.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That's not quite right. It should be 3y=2x + 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No. \[y=\frac{2}{3}x + 2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, I understand. Now, isn't there yet another formula to put in the points?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Once you have the slope of the given line you know the slope of your parallel line (parallel lines have the same slope). You can make your new line using the point slope formula: \[yy_0 = m(xx_0)\] Where m is the slope of your line, and \(x_0,y_0\) are the x and y values of a point on the line.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02/3 is the slope. y = mx + b The m is the slope.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y2=2/3(x+1) is correct. Then simplify. into y = something.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wow, i don't know how else to simplify this

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[y2 = \frac{2}{3}(x+1)\] Add 2 to both sides. \[y = \frac{2}{3}(x+1) + 2 \] Multiply through the 2/3. \[y = \frac{2}{3}x \frac{2}{3} + 2 \] Combine the nonvariable terms.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I will certainly do that.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You should have y = (2/3)x + 4/3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0All the other questions are coming up similar to 3x+y6=0 They all have 0's at the ends..

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That doesn't matter. You can always move things back and forth across the equal sign by adding or subtracting things.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So I could do 2/3x+y+2=0

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can, but there's no need.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Also that would be wrong.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Because you have to add (2/3)x 4/3 to both sides (or subtract y from both sides) to get 0.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You need to review working with equations a bit, and take things slowly, but you'll get there. Math is a practiced skill, not an innate talent.
