Slope Intercept formula: y=mx+b
ik that obviously but idk to do with the points and the equation
Well if you obviously knew that then you would of known that the m is 1/2 and the b is -2. Then -5 is x and -2 is why. You have to put them in Slope intercept form.

ok i got 8?
i think your question is missing a word
yea its parrel ot the line
Alright. you see the slope of y=1/2x-2 is 1/2, right?
wait? how is it 1/2?
Slope intercept form y=mx+b m is the slope
First use Point-slope form:\[y - y _{1}= m ( x - x _{1})\] If its parallel, it has the same slope, so m will be 1/2 The points will be (-5,-2), where Y1= -2 and X1= -5 Just plug these in, and isolate the y term on the left side to get slope-intercept form.
o ok lol i did then but then i solved it. i wasn't supposed to solve it?
nevermind did the math wrong
Can you tell me what you get?
i got -2=1/2+-2
You need to keep the x and y in there, and twhen you plug in in, it should look like: \[y + 2 = 1/2 ( x +5)\]
isn't that point slope form?
Yes, but in order to get to slope int form, you need to start here, and then change to slope int form
Can you distribute the right side out?
yes 1/2x+2.5
Ok so now you have y + 2 = 1/2 x + 2.5 Now carry over the 2 to the right side
Thats the equation in slope int form
o ok thank you that really helped for my geom. final
No problem
