whoa.. i just realized that.. umm here hold on..
no you would put y = -x +7
Maybe y=-x-2 ?
i had to use this equation: y-y1=m(x-x1)
start with y=-x+c put the point (-4,2) there, and find c
oh, so u have m, right ? which is ?
m=-1
i think..?
yes, because lines are parallel
and (x1,y1) = ?
(-4,2)
so it would be: y-2=-1(x-(-4)) right?
so now just put the values in y-y1=m(x-x1)
yes, that is correct
now simplify
ohk so then i would distribute? y-2=-1x+4 ?
u missed the brackets...
no cuz i multiplied (x-(-4)) by -1
so u get -1(x+4) = -x-4
-(-4) = +4
ohh ohk so the answer would be y=-x+-2 or y=-x-2 ?
oh nvm
yeah thats correct
y=-x-2
just keep the slope the same change the y intercepter
ohk thank you(:
welcome ^_^
