Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0equation of a line in the slope intercept form is y = mx+b. where m is the slope.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so not the first equation but the second one, i have to put it in y=mx+b right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, put the second equation in the slope intercept form.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait. are you sure the second equation is y  ky = 7?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay. so express it in the form y = mx+b, in otherwords, isolate y on the LHS and take the x term and constant term over to the RHS

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the equations y = 2x7 and y = kx+7 are parallel when their slopes are parallel. for an equation y = mx+b, m is the slope. these hints should be more than enough to help you solve this problem

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry I meant to say they are parallel when their slopes are equal.
