# How do you write the point slope form of the equation given (-4,0) parallel to #y=3/4x-2#?

##### 1 Answer

#### Answer:

#### Explanation:

The equation in the problem is in slope-intercept form. The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is:

Where

Therefore the slope of this line is

Because the line we are looking for is parallel to the line in the problem we know it will have the same slope.

We can now use the point-slope formula to find the equation for the line we are looking for. The point-slope formula states:

Where

Substituting the point from the problem and the slope from the parallel line gives:
