## hellllllooooo 3 years ago Find the equation of the line that passes through (1,0) and is parallel to y=2x+6

1. amistre64

y = 2x+c and plug in your point to determine "c"

2. hellllllooooo

what? :/

3. amistre64

refer to first post .....

4. hellllllooooo

What does plug in mean? :L

5. Beautifulgirl17

In order to find the parallel of any line simply flip over the mx or in this case 2x giving you y=1/2x+6. I presume...

6. Beautifulgirl17

plug in means place the numbers there.

7. amistre64

plug in means ; use the (x,y) point given and plug in those values for x and y into the equation to determine a value for "c"

8. amistre64

parallel is same slope; perp is flipped and negate slope

10. Beautifulgirl17

yea so the answer for the parallel would be -1/2x+6.

@beautifulgirl, you have parallel confused with perpendicular

12. satellite73

parallel lines have the same slope

13. satellite73

@hellllnowewon'tgo line has slope 2, goes through (1,0) equation is \[y=2(x-1)\] or \[y=2x-2\]
