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

    the line is parallel to the given line, so it has the same slope

    hmm seems like you dont like an interaction question and answer,,... :D ok after getting the slope of this line y= 7/9x-4/9 , 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.. ..

    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 y1-y=m(x-x1)

    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?

    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

    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

    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

    so now that you know m=7/9, we also have the point (x1,y1)=(7,-6); use that given to the formula y-y1=m(x-x1)

    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

    this is what you said the answer y-y1=7/9(x-x1) all you need to do is to sub what is x1 and y1 there

    (x1,y1)=(7,-6); sub this to your answer y-y1=7/9(x-x1)

    if you have a point of (7,-6) your x1=7 and y1=-6... therefore this can be like this (x1,y1)=(7,-6)

    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

    y - y1 = 7/9 ( x - x1 ) y - -6 = 7/9 (x - 7) try to simplify this more
