How do you graph the line that passes through the origin parallel to the line x+y=10?
See a solution process below:
The equation in the problem is in Standard Form for a Linear Equation. The standard form of a linear equation is:
Where, if at all possible,
The slope of an equation in standard form is:
A line parallel to this line will, by definition have the same slope.
We know the
We can use the slope-intercept formula to write and equation:
The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is:
Substituting the slope we calculated and the
We can also solve for the Standard Form:
