(-2,5), y=-4x+2Answer by stanbon(57980)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!How do you wirte the slope-intercept form of an equation of the line that passes through the given points and its parrell to the graph of each equation? (-2,5), y=-4x+2 ---------------- Form: y = mx + b where "m" is the slope and "b" is the y-intercept. ----------------- Your Equation: slope = -4 sinceit is parallel to y = -4x+2 which has slope = -4. intercept: You are givey = 5 when x = -2, so solve for "b": 5 = -4*-2 + b b = -3 -------------- Answer: y = -4x - 3 ========================= Cheers, Stan H.
