Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0parallel = means the same slope rewrite your ew as: 2y=3x4 or y=3/2 x 2 so, slope your existing line is: m=3/2 so, eq of parallel through the point (3,5): y5=3/2 *(x3) y=3/2x 9/2 +5=3/2 x+1/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Its like the one you just helped me with only perpendicular to the line 3x2y=4 and containing points 3,5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0try to do it yourself  I'll help. just remember that perpendicular means that your line will have slope (m2) = 1/m1... so, if rewrite your eq: y=3/2 x 2 so, for perp line: m2=2/3 eq of the line: y(5)=2/3 (x3) simplify, please

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So then y=2/3x+6/35?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y+5=2/3 *x +2 y=2/3 *x 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So the equation is y=2/3x3?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yep... to be exact: y=(2x/3 ) 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, I guess I just don't get how you suddenly got to x+2 in the end

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let's go back to: y(5)=2/3 (x3) i think that the way it written it could be confusing... let's try differently: y+5= x* (2/3) 3* (2/3) y+5=2x/3 +2 (3 in numerator & 3 in dominator are canceled out) is it better...?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That does make better sense. Math is like a whole other language for me, lol. Thank you so much for your help
