Find the equation of a line in slope-intercept form that passes through the point (4, -1) and is // to the line y = 1/2x - 3.

a) y = 1/2x - 1

b) y = 1/2x - 3

c) y = -2x +9

d) y = -2x -7

The slope of the new line will be the same : 1/2

so answer A or B Substitute in the point given 4, -1 to see which one it is .....

**Hello SmartMathMan!**

\(m=\frac{1}{2}\)

\(y=m(x-x_1)+y_1\\ y=\frac{1}{2}(x-4)-1\)

\(y=\frac{1}{2}x-3\) b)

Thank you asinus! It's kind of embarrassing but I kept trying to solve this and getting it wrong.
