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

parallel slope is still 1/2

so answer A or B    sub in the point   4, -1  into each of them to find 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)
