 Question 4316: write the slope-intercept form of the line that passes through (0,-2) and is parallel to the line 5x+4y=3.Answer by rapaljer(4667)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The fact that this line passes through the point (0,-2) means that the y-intercept is -2, so in the formula y=mx+b, the value of b is -2. Next, find the slope of the given line. To do this, you must solve for y. Add -5x to each side of the equation. Next divide both sides by 4 to express the given line in slope intercept form. so the slope m of the given line is The slope of ANY line parallel to this line is also , so the final answer is R^2 at SCC
