Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lets put this in slope intercept form! 2x3y=4 subtract 2x on both sides 3y=2x4 divide by negative 3 on both sides y2/3x+4/3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok, so we will start from solving that given line First of all, solve that line in the form of y=mx+c Where "m" is the slope. Note: Parallel line means same slope. 2x3y=4 Solve for y \[3y = 2x +4\]\[y = \frac23x + \frac43\] Comparing this with y=mx+c Slope is "m", so slope we get is 2/3. Now insert the point given and the slope in the formula, (i.e. slope and (5,2) \[yy_1 = m(xx_1)\] \[y  2 = \frac23 (x(5))\] Im sure u can solve now! :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its not 19/3. (2/3)*5+2= 5.33
