#1**+2 **

We want the form

y = mx + b .....where m is the slope

So

1. y = 2x + 7 the slope is 2

Equation of a parallel line (which has the same slope) (easy) .... y = 2x - 10

The only difference is the y intercepts....the first one is 7, the second is -10

2. 4y = x - 3 divide both sides by 4

y = (1/4)x - 3/4 the slope is (1/4)

Parallel line : y = (1/4)x

3. 2y + 2 = 3x subtract 2 from both sides

2y = 3x - 2 divide both sides by 2

y = (3/2)x - 1 the slope is 3/2

Parallel line : y = (3/2)x

Hope that makes sense, RP....!!!!
