How do you write an equation of a line that passes through the point (3, 2) and is parallel to the line y=3x-4?
The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is:
Therefore, for the given equation the slope is
Now we can use the point slope formula to determine the equation for the parallel line.
The point-slope formula states:
Substituting the slope from the given line and the given point gives:
Transforming this to the slope-intercept form by solving for
