Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1when 2 lines are parallel the have the same slope so x+3y=0.5 3y=x0.5 y=1/3(x) (0.5)/3 slope =1/3 now we use the given point (3,5) with the slope to find such equation...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1here the formula y=mx+b where y=5 , x=3 and m=1/3 subs those values to find b...its y intercept then....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1y=1/3(x)4 can also be written as 3y=x12 3yx=12 yep
