A line has the equation #2y=-3x+1#, how do you find an equation of a line parallel to this line that has a y intercept of -2?
See the process for solving this problem below in the Explanation:
First, we need to put the line from the problem in the slope-intercept form by solving for
The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is:
So we know the slope of the line from the question is
And, a parallel line by definition has the same slope so the slope of the line we are looking for also has a slope of
And because we know the
