Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you know that the equation of parallel lines are similar. the only difference is the yintercept so the equation of the required parallel line will be y = 8x + c now as the line passes through (3, 6) it will satisfy the equation so 6 = 8(3)+c c = 624 c= 30 so the required equation is y = 8x 30

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now for perpendicular lines, the slope of the required line multiplied by the slope of the given line = 1 from here find the slope of the required line you have slope and one point, so you can find the equation of the line
