Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what is the slope you need to use to make it parallel to y=4x2?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no 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=4x2?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so then it would be 4??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes good job, so now we have y=4x+b, lets fill in the x and y from the coordinates given.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1wait do you need to find the b also? do you have to graph it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No, but these are the choices they gave me to choose from. x – 4y = –18 x + 4y = 18 4x – y = –18 4x + y = 18

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no no you are on the right track! now solve for b in 6=4(3)+b

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes i got it! i added it instead of subtracting it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok now we have the slope and b value. y=4x+18, which one of the answers can be turned into this?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the last one i think

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no it is c, 4x – y = –18 y=4x8, divide by 1 to get y by itself, y=4x+18
