 Question 410144: Hello, my son is having trouble with these Co-ordinate Geometry problems. I was never good at math. Could anyone help us? 1. How do I find the equation of the line passing through the point (1,1) and parallel to y=5x-6? 2. How do I find the equation of the line passing through the point (1,5) and parallel to 4x+7y=18? Thank you!Answer by scott8148(6628)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!parallel means the lines have the same slope , which means the x and y coefficients stay the same what changes is the constant term ___ find the new constant term by plugging in the coordinates of the new point 1. (1) = 5(1) + ? ___ 1 = 5 + ? ___ -4 = ? ___ the new equation is ___ y = 5x - 4 2. 4(1) + 7(5) = ?
