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