Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0parallel lines have the same slope. So our lie must have a slope of 7/6 Our line is, y2=(7/6)(x+6) rearrange to get in slope intercept form

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the 6 in the slope and the point cancel out....then add 2 to the other side leaving 5?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Parallel = same slope 7x+6y=17 => y = (177x)/6 => y=(17/6)(7/6)x then m is (7/6) (y2)/(x+6) = (7/6) y=(7/6)x5 then new y pass by (6,2) and has slope (7/6)
