What is the equation of the line that passes through the point (1,7) and that is parallel to the line 3x-2y=5?

Accepted Solution

The line 3x-2y=5 can be written in the form y=mx+b 3x-2y=5 2y=3x-5 y=3/2 x -5/2 To solve for line parallel to the given line that passes through 1,7: use equation: y=3/2 x +k 7= 3/2 (1) + k k = 11/2 So the equation is: y=3/2 x +11/2 or 2y=3x+11
