Choose the equation of the line passing through the point (2, 6) and parallel to y =1/2 x  8.
y =1/2 x + 7
y =1/2 x + 5
y = 2x + 7
y = 2x + 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Slopes are equal for parallel lines. So slope of the required line=1/2 \(yy_1=m(xx_1)\) Here m=1/2(slope) \(x_1\)=2 \(y_1\)=6 Plug in these values in the above eqn and solve for y. Can u do it @carachronic?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1y = 1/2 x + 7 :) since its parallel, the slope stays the same: 1/2 then.... since it passes through (2, 6), therefore: y6 = 1/2(x+2) y  6 = 1/2x +1 y = 1/2 x +7
