 Question 443084: Write an equation of the line containing the given point and parallel to the given line. Express your answer in the form y=mx+b. (-3,6);8x=9y+4 The equation of the line is y=_______ (simplify the answer. By using integers or fractions for any numbers in the expression.)Answer by mananth(12270)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! -9 y = -8 x + 4 0.89 Divide by -9 y = 0.89 x + -0.44 Compare this equation with y=mx+b slope m = 0.89 The slope of a line parallel to the above line will be the same The slope of the required line will be 0.89 m= 0.89 ,point (-3,6) Find b by plugging the values of m & the point in y=mx+b 6=-2.67+b b=8.67 m=0.89 Plug value of the slope and b The required equation is y=0.89 x+8.67
