Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First get your equation in slopeintercept form: \(y=mx+b\) and m will be your slope. An equation that is parallel to it will have the same slope. Then just use the pointslope formula: \(\large yy_1=m(xx_1)\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1do you know how to put the equation 2x + 3y = 5 in y = mx + b form ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.12x + 3y = 5.......we are basically solving for y subtract 2x from both sides 2x  2x + 3y = 2x + 5 combine like terms 3y = 2x + 5 divide both sides by 3 (3/3)y = (2/3)x + 5/3 y = 2/3x + 3 read ^^ and see if you have any questions ? Then we will continue....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oops....I meant y = 2/3x + 5/3...I forgot the 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so our equation in y = mx + b form is : y = 2/3x + 5/3 In y = mx + b form, the slope is the number in the m position. So our slope is 2/3 Parallel lines WILL HAVE same slope. still with me ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now we take y = mx + b slope (m) = 2/3 your points (9,3)....x = 9 and y = 3 so basically the only thing we need to find is b, the y intercept y = mx + b 3 = 2/3(9) + b 3 = 6 + b 3 + 6 = b 3 = b so our parallel equation is : y = 2/3x + 3
