 Question 563565: Answer? write the equation of the line that is parallel to the given line and passes through the given point. y= -2x-1, (2,6) Answer by mananth(13127)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!y =-2 x-1 Compare this equation with y=mx+b slope m = -2 The slope of a line parallel to the above line will be the same The slope of the required line will be -2 m= -2 ,point (2,6 ) Find b by plugging the values of m & the point in y=mx+b 6 = -4 + b b= 10 m= -2 Plug value of the slope and b in y = mx +b The required equation is y = -2x+ 10 m.ananth@hotmail.ca
