Y= Please Help! Steps will be appreciated :-)Answer by user_dude2008(1861)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!midpoint of (-5,7) and (-6,9) is (-5.5, 8) ---> x=-5.5, y=8 Any equation parallel to y=-1 is y=k, k is any number Equation parallel to y=-1 and goes through (-5.5, 8): y=8
