 Question 250743: write an equation of the line that passes through the given point and is parallel to the given line. (5,4), y=3x+5Answer by blwinbbbles(106)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!First parallel lines have the same slope..so you know that y = 3x + 5 has a slope of 3 then you have the point (5, 4) so: the new equation would start as 4 = 3(5) + b...now solve for b 4 = 15 + b subtract 15 from both sides -11 = b so now we can write the equation y = 3x - 11 Hope this helps
