Hello all, thank you for your time.

First I would like to apologize. I have asked this question before on a reply to one of my earlier threads, but, since that thread already has 3 replies, no one is reading it, thinking my first question has already been answered. I am in a slight hurry so I will ask it again. Again, sorry to all you moderators who I know do not like double-posting. I hope you understand I'm in a time-crunch.

Write the equation of the line that is parallel to line A and passes through Point P

Line A=

Point P= (-1,2)

That would be:

right?

Originally it would be +b (y=mx+b) but since it's -x the + changes to a - correct?

If so, it would be

Add 2

$\displaystyle -4=b$

and the answer would be

correct?

I am asking this because I have been incorrect on some -x problems I have done before. I just wanted to make sure that since it's -x, and since the equation would originally be addition, but since it's -x, it is changed to subtraction.

If i am incorrect, and you still add b instead of subtracting it, the answer is positive $\displaystyle 1$ i believe.
