Write an equation of a line that is parallel to 6x-3y=9 that contains the point (-5,-8)

#1**+2 **

In the form Ax + By = C [this is known as standard form ]

The slope is given by -A/B

So......A = 6 and B = -3

So....slope = -6/ - 3 = 2

So.....since parallel lines have equal slopes

We want to write a line with a slope of 2 passing through (-5, -8)

Can you do it now, RP ???
