I assume the question should be y = -2x + 5?

The equation of a line that is parallel to that line is any line that begins

7 = -2x ... after the -2x any number may be added or subtracted.

Parallel lines have the same slope. In the original equation, the slope is -2.

When a straight line equation is parallel to another equation the slope remains the same but the y intercept changes

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 be parallel, the following are all parallel: y = 2x y = 2x + 1 y = 2x + 2 y = 2x + 100

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 equation of the line that goes through 3 1 and is parallel to the line 3x plus 5y equals 6?

Known equation: 3x+5y = 6 or y = -3/5x +6/5 Slope of equation: -3/5 Slope of parallel equation: -3/5 Parallel equation: y-1 = -3/5(x-3) => 5y = -3x+14 Parallel equation in its general form: 3x+5y-14 = 0

Which line is parallel to the line given by the equation 4x plus y equals 12?

4x+y = 14 will be parallel to the above equation because the slope or gradient remains the same but the y intercept changes.
