Yes:)

This 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 = ...

3y=8x+12

Good. Second job, what is happening to y?

umm will be dividing 3y to 8x and 12??

Yes, you divide every term on both sides by 3 to undo the y being multiplied by 3.

That will end up being y=8/34 ?

YAY! I was correct so then I will need to plug in (3,5) right?

Now you know the slope you need is m = ?

m=8/3

Great. 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.

b will equal to 3(:

Since you now know m and b, what is the equation of the new line?
 one year ago

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