Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.17x9y=4 => slope = 7/9 the equation of the line will be y=mx+b 6=(7/9)*7+b and then solve for b

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hi, first before we get the parallel line equation,: from this equation 7x9y=4 what is y=?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmm 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.. ..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0im 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)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0from y= mx + b y= 7/9x  4/9 what is the slope m?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0try to compare the formula to the one you answered on y=7/9 x 4/9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0would i have too subtract 7/94/9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0by 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?

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if 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

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

MauriceLong

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

MauriceLong

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i 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

MauriceLong

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

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

mark_o.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 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)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0correct 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

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

mark_o.

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

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

mark_o.

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the 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

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

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

mark_o.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y  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

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