# How do you write the equation given (-6,7); parallel to 3x + 7y = 3?

##### 2 Answers

#### Explanation:

We take the line above in the form

We know that any parallel is

We choose

```
or
```

#### Explanation:

Change

gradient,

Two parallel lines would have the same gradient, in this case gradient of

You can choose to use gradient formula

Gradient,

or general formula for straight line

**I would first be attempting it using gradient formula**

replace

*in this case, you have only 1 point given, if there is more, the x and y coordinate must be from the same point.*

rearrange

in case you don't like fractions, multiply whole equation by 7

**Using general formula**

replace

*in this case, you have only 1 point given, if there is more, the x and y coordinate must be from the same point.*

solve for c

substitute

*Both equation for straight line you get are the same, depending on which you prefer.*
