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)
