4x+y = 14 will be parallel to the above equation because the slope or gradient remains the same but the y intercept changes.
y equals 4x+1 is a parallel line to y equals 4x.
Given point: (6, 7) Equation: 3x+y = 8 Parallel equation: 3x+y = 25
When a straight line equation is parallel to another equation the slope remains the same but the y intercept changes
Write an equation in slope-intercept form for the line that passes through the given point and is parallel to the given line (-7,3); x=4
y = 3x+5 is parallel to y = 3x+7
Parallel straight line equations have the same slope but with different y intercepts
The slope is 5. Parallel lines always have the same slope.
The parallel equation is: y = 4x-3
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.
y = 4x + 2 Find the slope of a line parallel to the given equation. First, let's take a look at what it means to be parallel. The easiest way to look at it, is to think of railroad tracks. Parallel lines are the same distance apart for EVERY point on the line. This means, parallel lines will NEVER, ever cross. There will never be a point in common with both. Now think about how this will help us with our slope in the equation. Try to answer the following. Our parallel line will have: a) the same slope as the given line OR b) a different slope as the given line That's right, (a). If you're asked to find the equation/slope of a parallel line to a given line, the parallel line will always have the exact SAME slope as your given line! Since our given line y= 4x +2 has a slope of 4, the parallel line to y = 4x +2 will also have a slope of 4. Remember, the general form of a linear equation is y = mx +b, where m = slope and b = y-intercept.
y = 0.75x+0.5 For the equation to be parallel the slope must be the same but the y intercept must be different
It would be perpendicular to a line with the equation Y = 1/8 X.
Well, to answer your question,
The equation of such a line is [ Y = -4x plus any number].
You are missing a - or + sign. The answer is 5/2 though. :)
y=-(2/3)x + (n) where n can be any integer.
Write the equation of a line in slope-intercept form that has a slope of -2 and passes through the point (2, -8).
y=-2.5 is parallel to the x axis. The equation of the x axis is y=0
y = -5x + 9 is the equation of a straight line. It cannot be parallel or perpendicular by itself, you need another line to compare it to.
x - y = 1 y = x - 1 So any line with slope of 1 would be parallel to the given line. For example, y = x y = x + 3 y = x - 5 etc.
