    hold up amistre thats for perpendicular lines, this is a parallel line

    in that case; erase the 18, fill in yer x and y and solve; then git rid of the x and y values

    2x+9y=18 ; chuck the 18...its useless to us 2x+9y= ; now fill in your (x=27,y=-11) and solve 2(27)+9(-11)=

    54 -99 = -45 2x+9y=-45

    now put it in slope-intercept form by moving 2x over and dividing by 9 9y = -2x -45 y = (-2/9)x -5 that is the equation of the line going through point (27,-11) and parallel to given line
