write an equation of the line containing the given point and parallel to the given line.
can someone just help me get started on this???
please and thanksss.
the parallel line will go through point (8,-9)
y = kx + n
9x - 2y = 5
2y = 9x -5
y = (9/2)x - 5/2 <<< the first line
Parallel lines have the same koeficient k.
k in your case = 9/2
now you insert the coordinates of the point through which the parallel line will go through.
-9 = (9/2) * 8 + n
- 9 = 36 + n
n = -45
y = (9/2)x -45
