## raymay123 2 years ago What is the equation of the line passing through (–3, 6) and parallel to the line y = 4x – 2 in standard form?

1. warningiflirt

what is the slope you need to use to make it parallel to y=4x-2?

2. raymay123

It doesn't say..

3. warningiflirt

no you have the info you need, for it to be parallel you use the same slope as the equation given. so what is the slope in y=4x-2?

4. raymay123

would it be 4 ?

5. warningiflirt

hint in y=mx+b, m is the slope

6. raymay123

so then it would be 4??

7. warningiflirt

yes good job, so now we have y=4x+b, lets fill in the x and y from the coordinates given.

8. raymay123

so then 6=4(-3)+b?

9. warningiflirt

wait do you need to find the b also? do you have to graph it?

10. raymay123

No, but these are the choices they gave me to choose from. x – 4y = –18 x + 4y = 18 4x – y = –18 4x + y = 18

11. raymay123

im so confused

12. warningiflirt

no no you are on the right track! now solve for b in 6=4(-3)+b

13. raymay123

would b be -6?

14. warningiflirt

|dw:1373684032807:dw|

15. warningiflirt

see how I got 18?

16. warningiflirt

|dw:1373684167291:dw|

17. raymay123

18. warningiflirt

ok now we have the slope and b value. y=4x+18, which one of the answers can be turned into this?

19. raymay123

the last one i think

20. warningiflirt

no it is c, 4x – y = –18 -y=-4x-8, divide by -1 to get y by itself, y=4x+18

21. warningiflirt

do you understand?

22. raymay123

ohhhh okay I get it now!

23. warningiflirt

good work on trying! ( I accept medals 2 lol)

24. raymay123

thank you for helping me

25. warningiflirt

you are very welcome.
