Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lines are parallel so the whole equation will be same except the intercept. we know that equation of line is y = m.x + c here c is the intercept so the equation of the line parallel to the given line will be y = (3/4)x +c now as the line passes through (4, 1) it will satisfy the equation so 1 = (3/4) 4 + c so 1 = 3 + c or c = 4 so the required equation is y = (3/4) x +4
