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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Alright. you see the slope of y=1/2x2 is 1/2, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1First use Pointslope 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 slopeintercept form.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You need to keep the x and y in there, and twhen you plug in in, it should look like: \[y + 2 = 1/2 ( x +5)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0isn't that point slope form?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes, but in order to get to slope int form, you need to start here, and then change to slope int form

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok so now you have y + 2 = 1/2 x + 2.5 Now carry over the 2 to the right side
