# How you would write the equation of a line given a point on the line and a parallel line?

y = 3x+5 is parallel to y = 3x+7

### Write an equation of the line containing the given point and parallel to the given line. 3 -1 in parenthess 9x -7y 4 Simplify type in the from of ymx b. Thank?

This is simple algebra. You should know that parallel lines have the same slope. So you would take the slope of the line that is given to you and set it up in the equation y= mx + b. m stand for your slope and you would take the point that it gives you (3, -1) and plug it into y = mx + b (along with your slope) and solve for b..once you've solved…

### What is parallel to y equals 2x 5?

All lines that have the same slope are parallel to each other. To determine which lines are parallel to the give equation, you must first have to determine the slope of the equation. Notice that your equation is written in y = mx + b form, where m represents slope. In this case, m = 2. Any equation with a slope of 2 is parallel to your given line. For examples of lines that would…

### What equation represents a line perpendicular to the line whose equation is 2x plus 3y equals 12?

Rearranging the original equation, we get y=-(2/3)x+12. Since 12 is the constant, this is the point that the line of this equation will cut the y-axis if x=0. Therefore, -(2/3) is the gradient and for an equation to produce a parallel line, the gradient must be equal. Summing up, y=-(2/3)+c (where c equals any real number) would be parallel

### What is the slope of a parabola?

a parabola doesn't have one slope, the slope is constantly changing as you move accross the graph. however, it is possible to find a slope to a line tangent to a point on a parabola. to do this, take the derivative of the equation for the given parabola. then, take the X,Y coordinate and plug in the x value for the point. So, if the graph of of the equation was given by y=x^2, the…

### What is the coordinates of the y- intercept and the x- intercept for the equation 2x plus y equals 0?

2x+y=0. The x-intercept is the point where y=0 and the y-intercept is the point where x=0. If x is 0, the given equation becomes 2(0)+y=0. This is the same as y=0, so the coordinates of the x-intercept are (0,0). Usually, you would plug in y=0 and find x to find the x-intercept. However, since y=0 for the x-intercept, we know that x=0 when y=0 (given that the function crosses the y-axis at only 1 point…

### How do you write an equation that is perpendicular to a given line and passes through the given point?

you make an equation of the line: standard form: (y-y1)= m(x-x1) so if the point is (2, -2) and you want to make it perpendicular to the line with a slope (m) of 1/2, the perpendicular slope is the negative recipricle which is -2 so the equation would be: (y--2)= -2(x-2) (y+2)= -2(x-2) y+2= -2x +4 -2 -2 Slope Intercept Form: y= -2x +2

### How do you solve 2x-y equals 3?

"Solve" means to find the unique value of every variable, i.e. 'x' and 'y'. You can't do that with this equation. It's the equation of a straight line, and every point on the line satisfies the equation. There are an infinite number of them. If you had another equation relating the values of 'x' and 'y', there would be only a single point that satisfied both equations. That point would be the solution of the…

### Find an equation for the line with undefined slope and passing through the point -5 -10 HELP?

Well you need to have two points to find the equation of a line and you've only given one point with the coordinates (-5, -10). I would recheck the question to see if it gave a y-intercept, which would give us another point, and make this solvable. Since you've given only one point, I am going to assume that the line passes through the origin at point (0, 0) If this is the case then…
