Q:
# 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

A:

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
