Parallel line slopes are equal

whoa.. i just realized that.. umm here hold on..
anonymous
  • anonymous
no you would put y = -x +7
P0sitr0n

Maybe y=-x-2 ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
i had to use this equation: y-y1=m(x-x1)
hartnn
  • hartnn
start with y=-x+c put the point (-4,2) there, and find c
hartnn
  • hartnn
oh, so u have m, right ? which is ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
m=-1
anonymous
  • anonymous
i think..?
hartnn
  • hartnn
yes, because lines are parallel
hartnn
  • hartnn
and (x1,y1) = ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
(-4,2)
anonymous
  • anonymous
so it would be: y-2=-1(x-(-4)) right?
hartnn
  • hartnn
so now just put the values in y-y1=m(x-x1)
hartnn
  • hartnn
yes, that is correct
hartnn
  • hartnn
now simplify
anonymous
  • anonymous
ohk so then i would distribute? y-2=-1x+4 ?
hartnn
  • hartnn
u missed the brackets...
anonymous
  • anonymous
no cuz i multiplied (x-(-4)) by -1
hartnn
  • hartnn
so u get -1(x+4) = -x-4
hartnn
  • hartnn
-(-4) = +4
anonymous
  • anonymous
ohh ohk so the answer would be y=-x+-2 or y=-x-2 ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh nvm
hartnn
  • hartnn
yeah thats correct
hartnn
  • hartnn
y=-x-2
anonymous
  • anonymous
just keep the slope the same change the y intercepter
anonymous
  • anonymous
ohk thank you(:
hartnn
  • hartnn
welcome ^_^
