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.

Alright. you see the slope of y=1/2x2 is 1/2, right?

wait? how is it 1/2?

Slope intercept form y=mx+b m is the slope

First 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.

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?

zaynahfBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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?

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