Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hint: equation for the line which passes at point A and at point B, is: \[\Large \frac{{x  x1}}{{{x_2}  {x_1}}} = \frac{{y  {y_1}}}{{{y_2}  {y_1}}}\] where A=(x1,y1) and B=(x2,y2) Now you have to substitute the coordinates of both points A and B, in order to to write the corresponding equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1your exercise asks for the equation of the line parallel to the line which passes at points A and B, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so, we have to write the equation which passes at point A and B, first

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in order to do that, you have to substitute the coordinates of your points A and B into the equation above

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok! Here is the procedure: we have this: \[\Large \begin{gathered} {x_1} =  3,\quad {x_2} =  6 \hfill \\ {y_1} = 0,\quad {y_2} = 5 \hfill \\ \end{gathered} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i need like help fast class ends in 5 mins and i have 1 more question after so i wrote the equation from your thing now what?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now, I substitute those value into my equation above, and I get: \[\Large \frac{{x  \left( {  3} \right)}}{{  6  \left( {  3} \right)}} = \frac{{y  0}}{{5  0}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now I can simplify as below: \[\Large \begin{gathered} \frac{y}{5} = \frac{{x + 3}}{{  6 + 3}} \hfill \\ \hfill \\ \frac{y}{5} = \frac{{x + 3}}{{  3}} \hfill \\ \hfill \\ y =  \frac{5}{3}\left( {x + 3} \right) \hfill \\ \end{gathered} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0parallel to that is?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no, the requested line, being parallel to that line has to have the same slope, in other words the slope of the requested parallel line is: \[\Large m =  \frac{5}{3}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1since parallel lines have the same slope
