Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0first put equation into y=mx+b then use point slope form yy1=m(xx1) m=slope

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then the expression will look like y4+m(x0)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0slope will be 1/5 as it is parallel to the rrquired eqn.so slopes of oth equations wll be same.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0u r given a point (0,4) this will be x1 and y1 in the eqn, (yy1)=slope(xx1) put the values and try it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How did you figured out the slope was 1/5?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First substitute the value to make y positive: y=0.2x3 then use the gradient equation: (yy1)=m(xx1) where m is the slope and the point is (x1,y1) and you will get this: y4=0.2(x0) and after simplifying you get: y=0.2x+4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because the slope on the x value is 1/5 when the coefficient of y is 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what's the slope of x+15=5y

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you need to get the equation into y = mx+b form first

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0umm can you help me with it, y intercept form was a sucky thing for me

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1start with x+15=5y and divide both sides by 5 to isolate y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what you have is close, but it's a bit off

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hmm how are you getting that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0umm im trying to divide andthen divide both sides by 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1another way to think about it: divide every term by 5 to isolate y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it should be 1/5x  3 = y

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it should be y = 1/5x  3 but you pretty much have it (ignoring the typo)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and whats my next step?

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so what is the slope of y = 1/5x  3

jim_thompson5910
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so the slope of any parallel line to this one is also 1/5

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1since parallel lines have equal slopes

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the given point is (0,4) so x = 0 and y = 4  we know that m = 1/5, x = 0, y = 4 plug these 3 pieces of info into y = mx + b and solve for b

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the slope is negative, so it should be y = 1/5x + 4
