Choose the equation of the line passing through the point (2, 6) and parallel to y = 3x  4.
y = 3x  12
y = 3x
y = 3x + 12
y = 3x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@ivandelgado parallel means they have exactly the same slope. look at the chocices

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Since the line is parallel to y=3x4, our line will have the same slope as this one, 3x. Remember, all parallel lines have the same slope. For this problem, you have to know the pointslope formula. yy1=m(xx1). The m is the slope in this formula. the x1 and the y1 is the coord. For this problem, our (x1,y1) is (2,6). Also, our m for this problem will be 3, since all parallel lines have the same slope. Now since we know what everything is and how to do it we'll solve it. y6=3(x2) First we distribute this. y6=3x+6 Now we add 6 on both sides. y=3x+12 is what we get, and this is our answer :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You don't really need to know about that since you're using (2,6) to make youre new line as I showed up above. The 4 was just part of the othee equation.
