Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1since the lines r parallel, the slope is 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1because the line is parallel to 3x + y= 7 parallel lines have the same slope

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Anything parallel to Ax+By+10=0 will be of the form Ax+By = C where C is some fixed number Using numbers anything parallel to 3x+y=7 will be in the form 3x+y = C

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so if we had 4x+5y=7 then A=4 and B=5?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah because the left side of a standard form equation stays the same when you have parallel lines
