7x9y=4 => slope = 7/9 the equation of the line will be y=mx+b 6=(7/9)*7+b and then solve for b

im still confuse with this..

edwardpBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
the line is parallel to the given line, so it has the same slope

hi, first before we get the parallel line equation,: from this equation 7x9y=4 what is y=?

ok good with this line y= 7/9x4/9 what is your slope m=?

mark_o.Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
hmm seems like you dont like an interaction question and answer,,... :D ok after getting the slope of this line y= 7/9x4/9 , also get the slope of parallel to this line then form an equation of line from the point (7,6) with that slope of parallel line.. ..

can u help me solve this problem please

mark_o.Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
im sorry the slope of parallel line is the same m1=m2 so you can form another line using this slope m1, using the point(7,6) and the formula y1y=m(xx1)

ok. i am getting a better understanding on this so far.

from y= mx + b y= 7/9x  4/9 what is the slope m?

yesss just answer what i ask you and you will get it ... :D

try to compare the formula to the one you answered on y=7/9 x 4/9

would i have too subtract 7/94/9
 one year ago

mark_o.Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
by comparing the formula from y= mx + b y= 7/9x  4/9 what is the slope m? we know that b=4/9, what is slope m?
 one year ago

mark_o.Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
no you cant subtract because 7/9 x has an x with it and the 4/9 has no x.. so they are different terms
 one year ago

mark_o.Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
if it would be 7/9x  4/9 x then its ok to subtract but this time they are not.. :D go ahead you can ask me more question what do you want to know

we want to know the slope m of this particular line dw:1354578182118:dw

from y= mx + b y= 7/9x +  4/9 we know that b=4/9,, what is slope m=?
 one year ago

MauriceLongBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
I dont know how too get the slope. Confuse.

MauriceLongBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
do i subtract 4/9 too both sides

mark_o.Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
i will give you more examples if y= 3x +4... the slope of this is m=3 and b=4 for f(x)=1/3 7 the slope of this line is m=1/3 and b=7
 one year ago

MauriceLongBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so the slope is 4/9

mark_o.Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
from y= mx + b y= 7/9x +  4/9 that is b=4/9,, what is m?
 one year ago

mark_o.Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so now that you know m=7/9, we also have the point (x1,y1)=(7,6); use that given to the formula yy1=m(xx1)
 one year ago

mark_o.Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
correct but you also have to sub what is x1 and y1 (x1,y1)=(7,6); sub thius to what you have done you are getting closer :D
 one year ago

mark_o.Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
this is what you said the answer yy1=7/9(xx1) all you need to do is to sub what is x1 and y1 there
 one year ago

mark_o.Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
(x1,y1)=(7,6); sub this to your answer yy1=7/9(xx1)
 one year ago

mark_o.Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
if you have a point of (7,6) your x1=7 and y1=6... therefore this can be like this (x1,y1)=(7,6)
 one year ago

mark_o.Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
therefore plug those x1 =7 and y1=6 to your answer yy1=7/9(xx1)

mark_o.Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
y  y1 = 7/9 ( x  x1 ) y  ____ = 7/9 (x  ______)
 one year ago

mark_o.Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
the point is (7 , 6) ( x1,y1) x1=7 and y1= 6 careful on negative sign, put the negative sign on 6... you are getting closer to the correct answer

mark_o.Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
y  y1 = 7/9 ( x  x1 ) y  ____ = 7/9 (x  ______) give it more try ill tell you if you are correct :D

mark_o.Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
your answer y6=7/9(x7) 6 is not correct because y 6=__?
 one year ago

mark_o.Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
y  y1 = 7/9 ( x  x1 ) .... y  ____ = 7/9 (x  7) give it more try on the y, ill tell you if you are correct :D   6 is not= 6
 one year ago

mark_o.Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
y  y1 = 7/9 ( x  x1 ) y  6 = 7/9 (x  7) try to simplify this more
