Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01) present given equation in form : y=... 5y=3x9 y=3/5 *x  9/5 2) you found that the slope of given line is 3/5 your line = parallel to the give line, so  the same slope; 3) equation of the line containing point (4,7): y7=(3/5) *(x (4)) y=(3/5)x +(12/5) +7 y=(3/5)x + 47/5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it fine. If i had to write it thn, i would hav written: 5y=3x +47.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0use the reciprocal correct? which would be instead of 3/5 => 5/3?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i got the answer of \[y = (5 \ 3)x + (1 \ 3)\] <

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i believe so, thats what i solved for using the point slope formula. and i got the slope from the problem i had done above with the parallel line
