    parallel lines have same slope so y=mx+b then use point and slope to find b

    9x-3=2y y=9/2 x - 3/2 so slope is 9/2

    b=51/2 so 3=-45/2 + b add -45/2 to both sides and change 3 to 6/2 so you can add 45/2 y=9/2 x +51/2

    -5=-20/3 +b add 20/3 so 5 which is 15/3+20/3=35/3

    4x+3y=7 solve for y -4x -4x 3y=7-4x or 3y=-4x+7 ---------- 3 y=-4/3 x + 7/3 so slope is -4/3 parallel lines have same slope so use m=-4/3 and (5, -5) and plug into slope-intercept form to find "b"-y intercept y=mx+b -5=-4/3(5)+b -5=-20/3 + b +20/3 +20/3 -15/3 + 20/3 = b 5/3= b so y=-4/3x + 5/3
