## why.math 3 years ago Choose the equation of the line passing through the point (-2, 6) and parallel to y = x - 8. a)y = x + 7 b)y = x + 5 c) y = 2x + 7 d)y = 2x + 5

none of the above, are you sure it is (-2,6)?

3. JuanitaM

if those are your choices - did you write the problem correctly?

4. why.math

oh sorry its y = 1/2x -8

no, none of these lines are parallel to that line

6. JuanitaM

agreed - maybe the lines are perpendicular to that????

7. JuanitaM

no not Perpendicular either..

8. AnimalAin

Concur that Juanita's work is correct.

the problem is that none of the given lines goes through (-2,6)

10. why.math

ok im lost

11. JuanitaM

y = 1/2x -8 this is the correct problem right/

12. JuanitaM

your question state paralell line at the point of (-2,6) u there?

13. why.math

14. JuanitaM

did you figure this out?

Choose the equation of the line passing through the point (-2, 6) and parallel to y =1/2 x - 8. he wrote the question wrong
