Please help me... :) Select the equation of the line that passes through the point (3, −1) and is parallel to the line on the graph. y = −1 y = 3 y = x −1 y = 3x −1

    so if the 2 lines are parallel, does that mean they have the same slope or different slopes?

    the same slope, and i have located the line. I don't think its B, I know its not A, because I have tried that.. I just dont know how to get c or d...

    but this new line will have to pass through the point (3,-1)

    yes, I know where the line is, it is approx. 3.5 units down from the original line.

    The line in the graph seems to have the equation \(\sf y=2.5\)

    What is the y-value for this point (3,-1)

    -1

    so the line will have to be \(\sf y=-1\)

    and whatever the x-value may be, the y-value will always be -1

    so it has the same slope of 0, and it passes through the point (3,-1)

    but A is not the answer, I tried that and got it wrong.

    Ask your teacher about the question. She can probably give you back points because the system has the wrong answer...
