 Question 176208: please help me with this question: write the equation of a line that is parallel to y = 2/3x - 2 and passes through (2,1) Thankyou for the helpAnswer by solver91311(17077)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!You need to use the point-slope form of the equation of a straight line. You also need to use the fact that parallel lines have equal slopes. The given equation is in the slope-intercept form, meaning that the coefficient on the term is the slope of the line. The point-slope form is where is the given point and is the slope. Since you did not specify the form for your answer, when you have substituted the values you can call that done. However, if you need your answer in slope-intercept form, then you need to solve the resulting equation for .
