 Question 19621: Can you please help me solve A line passing through (6,9)and (5,y)is parallel to a line with slope 5. What is the value of y?Answer by venugopalramana(3286)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! line passing through (6,9)and (5,y)is parallel to a line with slope 5. What is the value of y? SLOPE OF LINE JOINING 2 POINTS (X1,Y1) AND (X2,Y2) IS (Y2-Y1)/(X2-X1) HERE SLOPE =(Y-9)/(5-6)..SINCE PARALLEL LINES HAVE SAME SLOPE.WE HAVE 5=(Y-9)/(5-6)=-(Y-9)=-Y+9 Y=9-5=4 ..
