## krissywatts 2 years ago write an equation in slope-intercept form of the line whose y-intercept is 4and the line is parallel line whose equation is 6+y=5 hat is the slope intercept? i need step by step help please

1. krissywatts

i got 2y/2=-6/2x+5/2 so far

2. krissywatts

then this equalls y=-3x+4 because i bring down the 4 in the equation as stated in the problem correct?

3. krissywatts

So my answer for slope intercept should be y=-3x+4?

What's your original line?

7. krissywatts

6+y=5 is the original along with the 4 as y intercept

9. Brandon77

okay first get it into y = mx + b form

10. KingGeorge

6+y=5? So y=-1?

11. Brandon77

yes, so the slope is 0

12. Brandon77

the line you are looking for needs to have a slope of 0 and cross the y axis at 4

13. Brandon77

so y = 4

14. krissywatts

and so my answer will be y=-3x+4 correct?

15. Brandon77

no, your original line had a slope of zero. so your answer should b y=4

16. krissywatts

oh okay thanks

17. Brandon77

no prob
