Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1This is the same idea. You need a line parallel to a given line. Parallel lines have the same slope. So the first job is to find the slope of the given line. To do that, you solve the equation for y. First, switch sides. 3y = ...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1umm will be dividing 3y to 8x and 12??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes, you divide every term on both sides by 3 to undo the y being multiplied by 3.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That will end up being y=8/34 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1YAY! I was correct so then I will need to plug in (3,5) right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now you know the slope you need is m = ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Great. Now the new equation is going to have m = 8/3, and point (3, 5) If you plug in 8/3 for m and 3 for x and 5 for y into y = mx + b, you can solve for b.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1~le dances~ The equation will be y=8/3+3 =D
