How do you write an equation for the line in slope intercept form that is parallel to the given line and that passes through the given point y = x – 5; (–2, –16)?
The equaion of line in slope intercept form is
Parallel lines have equal slope. The slope of the line
So the slope of the asked line is also
Let the equaion of the line is
The line passes through
Hence the equaion of line is
