Through (6,8); parallel to 9x-y=6Answer by mananth(12270)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!9 x + -1 y = 6 Find the slope of this line make y the subject -1 y = -9 x + 6 Divide by -1 y = 9 x -6 Compare this equation with y=mx+b slope m = 9 The slope of a line parallel to the above line will be the same The slope of the required line will be 9 m= 9 ,point ( 6 , 8 ) Find b by plugging the values of m & the point in y=mx+b 8 = 54.00 + b b= -46 m= 9 Plug value of the slope and b in y = mx +b The required equation is y = 9 x -46 y = 9 x -46 m.ananth@hotmail.ca
