Ques: Find the equation of the line that passes through the y-intercept of the line 3x+5y+2=0 and is parallel to the line 2x-4y-1=0.
From 3x+5y+2=0 , i found out that y-intercept= -2/5 x-intercept= -2/3
From 2x-4y-1=0 the, i found out that m= 1/2
Since m1=m2, i sub into the formula: y+2/5=1/2(x+2/3)
answer i got is y=1/2x-1/15 but is wrong.
can anybody help? Thanks.
