Question: Write an equation in slopeintercept form for the line parallel to y = 5x – 2 that passes through the point (8, –2).
My answer: Okay so we know that our slope is 5, so now we can use the point slope formula. y  y1 = m (x  x1) = y  ( 2) = 5(x  8) = y + 2 = 5x  40, now we subtract 2 from both sides. y + 2  2 = 5x  40 + 2 = y = 5x  38.
