Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0given point (2,3) and the line 3x+4y8=0 first we want to simplify 3x+4y8=0 to 4y= 3x + 8 y = (3/4)x + 2 since this is parallel to the line we wanted its slope m is the same whats the slope m= ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if thats the slope we can use it to form equation of the line using the formula and the point (2,3) yy1=m(x  x1) try forming it using this formula
