Parallel lines have the same slope as the other line.

  • anonymous
Change your line to slope y-intercept format.

  • anonymous
But the line has to pass through the point 9,-3 at the same time. Thats whats confusing me.

That's okay.

What is the slope of your line though? Do you recognize that?

  • anonymous
Change your line to y=mx+b format.

yes

so then it is 3y = -2x + 5
anonymous
  • anonymous
It would be 3y=-2x+5

@ryan123345 : let him do the work please.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh. He already posted.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Okay now divide by 3.
ryan123345
  • ryan123345
ok
anonymous
  • anonymous
Because we want the format: y=mx+b
anonymous
  • anonymous
We have 3y.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Y= - 2/3x+ 3
anonymous
  • anonymous
Okay but 5/3 is not 3.
anonymous
  • anonymous
It's just 5/3 .
anonymous
  • anonymous
So just replace the 3 with 5/3
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yep.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Now do you see what the slope is?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ok now i got it. Thank you!
anonymous

Okay then. You are welcome :) .
