What is the equation of the line that is parallel to the line y = x + 4 and passes through the point (6, 5)? y = x + 3 y = x + 7 y = 3x – 13 y = 3x + 5

Accepted Solution

Have your teacher show you how to work this one. None of the answer choices shown here is correct for the question written here.The appropriate equation is ...... y = x - 1_____You know the parallel line will have the same slope (x-coefficient), so all that changes is the added constant (the y-intercept). To find that constant, you can plug in the given values of x and y and see what it needs to be... 5 = 6 + ___Obviously, the constant is -1, not 3 or 7.
