Question

What is the equation to the parallel of 7x-y=8 passing through the point (-2,3)

1 Answer

  • Answer:

    y =7x + 17

    Step-by-step explanation:

    7x-y=8

    y = 7x - 8......convert to slope intercept form

    m = 7

    parallel lines have the same slope

    put in point slope form using the points of the equation of the line that you want to find

    y - 3 = 7(x+2)

    y -3 = 7x + 14.........distribute

    y = 7x +14 + 3.........add 3 to both sides

    y = 7x +17................simplify
