Audrey is trying to find the equation of a line parallel to y = 2 over 3x −5 in slopeintercept form that passes through the point (−6, −1). Which of the following equations will she use?
y − (−6) = 2 over 3(x − (−1))
y − (−1) = 2 over 3(x − (−6))
y − (−6) = 3 over 2(x − (−1))
y − (−1) = 3 over 2(x − (−6))

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i know that parallel lines are two lines that lie within the same plane and never intersect and im not sure the slope would be

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1y = mx+ b is a slope intercept form where m is slope and b is yintercept so what is m in this equation ??\[\huge\rm y =\frac{ 2}{ 3}x −5\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0m= 2/3 and b= 5 right (:

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes right so parallel lines should have same slope so equation of new line should be the same :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and then point slope formula \[\huge\rm yy_1 = m(xx_1)\] where m is slope plug in (x_1 ,y_1) by order pair

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so 2/3 would be y1 i think and then 8 would be M is that right ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1how did you get 8 given order pair is (6,1) first number is x_1 and 2nd one is y_1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh ok sorry nnesha would it be ok if you explain it alittle better sorry im still learning about this stuff

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1alright so your answer choices are in point slope form which is \[\huge\rm yy_1=m(xx_1)\] where m is slope and \[(x_1,y_1)\] is the given order pair so just substitute values into the formula m is slope like i said parallel lines should have the same slope :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if slope of first line is 2/3 slope of 2nd line is also 2/3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hmm well in order pair (x,y) first number is x and 2nd one is y so 6 is x or 1 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i just said x comes first and then y like (x,y) like this
